Sometimes situations in life can cause moments of chaos. The disciples experienced a moment like this, found in Mark 4: 38 & 39: Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
Needless to say that must have been a very chaotic situation, seemingly to the point of being fatally chaotic. But Jesus, is calmly sleeping, he calmly speak to the wind and the winds calmly responded.
We are sometimes just like the disciples, maybe not you, but I am like this sometimes. When a rough area of life comes, at times we often think does God really care about us? And if He really cared about us, why is our situation the way it is? Some many questions at such a kinetic pace.
Oh to remain as calm as Jesus and speak to the winds of our lives. Remain calm, the Master is on board. The waves that we face from time to time won’t overtake us. They are simply helping us to strengthen our faith to trust Jesus more.
