As I looked out my window, trees were beginning to sway as the wind was getting up, the sky was darkening as though a storm may be on the horizon, as the sound of heavy rain began to fall I was reminded of another storm that took place long ago with a man on board whom when awaken, simply said peace be still & turned to those on board who were sore afraid & asked why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
(Mark 4:37-40) (37)and there arose a great storm of wind and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full(38)and he was in the hinder part of the ship asleep on a pillow and they awake him and say unto him Master carest thou not that we perish?(39)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(40)and he said unto them why are ye so fearful?how is it that ye have no faith?
It was Peter’s faith that allowed him to walk on the water, it was when he allowed fear to overtake his faith that he began to sink
Don’t let fear overtake your faith
keep your eyes on Jesus
and you will hear that still small voice saying
PEACE BE STILL !
