Performance of Jesus- Peace Be Still
Calming the storm – we look at this Work of God in nature, and God still controls all of nature. In Mark 4:37-41, the narrative of the disciples caught in a high wind storm on the Sea of Galilee skirted by high mountains on the East with hills with narrow gorges on the West, and it was a dark, gloomy night. In fear of their lives, with the small fleet of ships filling with water, sinking, and the Master asleep in the boat, they panicked, not only for themselves but for those who followed them. Carest thou not that we perish (Mark 4:38)?
This question not only signified their panic but their lack of Faith in the Master.
Luke 8:22-25 records another version of the narrative, and in all three reports, the impression is the same, their Faith was shaken. Most of us are challenged by situations that seem impossible, but the Master can deliver us from them all (Psalm 34:19, 2 Timothy 4:18).
Peace be still (Mark 4:39), the commandment to the elements which struck awe in the hearts of all of those who thought that they would perish. Jesus demonstrated His strength in a storm, not because He was challenged, but because He is the Savior of the world. He is still the Savior and leads us through the storms of our lives to make us strong (James 1:3-7). He leads us to the place that we must know as the refuge of our soul (Psalm 142:5). He is the reconciliation for the sins of the people (Hebrews 2:17)
And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
The LORD Is with You, Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12), we thank You for power to calm the storms in our lives. We praise You for Grace and Calm in the understanding of peace. We decree and declare blessings upon those who walk in Faith of Jesus Christ, so that; by speaking Your Peace, we speak to the storms, we calm the raging seas, we stand on the Word that can not fail. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
