Matthew 8:27 ” The men were amazed and asked, ‘What kind of man is this? Even the winds and waves obey Him?’ “

Jesus had just rebuked the  storm and now all was peaceful and calm on the Sea of Galilee.  With only a few words, the fierce winds and raging storm had ceased.  But why were His disciples so dumbfounded and astonished at what Jesus had done?   After all, they had been witnessing countless miracles as they traveled with him.  But like us,  when the storm hit their lives personally…they panicked.   When we’re hit broad-side and without warning with the storms of life…we panic.  We suddenly are battered by the winds of anxiety and will succumb under the waves of fear.  It’s then we need to reach out our hands to Jesus for help…for it tells us in Psalm 107:29,  ” He stilled the storm to a whisper, the waves of the sea were hushed.”   May the Lord of the universe calm the storm in your life today.

Psalm 107: 26-29 ” …in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.”

Our bravery wanes when we’re faced with something bigger than us and feel we have no control.  But whatever you’re going through today remember – nothing is bigger than God.  The Lord can calm any storm in your life…whether it be outside your window or deep within your being.  Look to God…cry out to Him, for He is there to come to your aid.  For God can make a way when there seems to be no way…in all situations.
