It hasn’t been that long ago that our town suffered a tremendous blow from tornados & now they ‘ve popped their ugly little heads back up with devastation & death all around surrounding areas, we pray for peace & recovery for those in need as well as give him praise for keeping his hand on our families
as winds are blowing,trees are crackling,sounds of heavy rain along with sirens going off I was reminded of another storm long ago with a man on board whom when awaken simply said peace be still & turned to those who were sore afraid & asked why are ye so fearful, how is it that ye have no faith?
and there arose a great storm of wind and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full,and he was in the hinder part of the ship asleep on a pillow and they awake him and say unto him Master careest thou not that we perish? 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,and he said unto them why are ye so fearful?how is it that ye have no faith? (Matt.4:37-40)
It was Peter’s faith that allowed him to walk on the water,it was when his fear overtook 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 shhhhhh peace be still
