Peace Be Still

Key Verse

“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” (Mark 4:39).

TEXT — Mark 4:35-49


Charles Wesley penned the following profound words of confidence titled “Almighty Shade” that must remind the disciples of Christ about His superintending oversight on His own as they face the stormy sea: “I rest beneath the Almighty’s shade, My griefs expire, my troubles cease; Thou, Lord, on whom my soul is stayed, Wilt keep me still in perfect peace.” Wesley, himself, having faced different vicissitudes of life came to that realisation that it was only the assurance of God’s abiding presence that helped him sail through those stormy and windy days.

In today’s passage, the disciples faced a massive storm that shook the very foundation of their faith though they had been with their Master for some time and had witnessed several miracles performed by Him. It was a powerful, boisterous storm, so intense that they feared for their lives. While the Master lay asleep in the rear, the storm arose. The disciples had to call upon Him when the situation went out of their control. Jesus stood, rebuked the wind and there was a great calm.

Life on this side of eternity is fraught with life-threatening experiences. We often encounter storms in our life journeys from time to time. These storms could come in the form of unexpected turn of events, persistent unpleasant experiences, challenges with our children or partners and besetting sin, which may lead to devastating outcomes if not quickly brought under control.

Whatever is the nature of the storm you are facing now, the Master over the storms can bring calmness if, like the disciples, you call His attention. But you need to bring Him on board by accepting His love and surrendering your life to Him as your personal Lord and Saviour.

Thought for the day

Jesus is the Master over every storm of life.
