Sometimes storms can cause much damage and wreak havoc in our lives. While the news focuses on environmental storms, there are other storms just as devastating that people experience every day, such as unemployment, sickness, financial hardship, broken relationships and the list goes on. These storms of life threaten our peace, comfort, and joy, and often bring about fear, doubt and hopelessness.
The disciples were filled with great fear when Jesus rebuked the wind and told the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Mark 4:39 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. Jesus displayed amazing supernatural power over nature. We learn, along with the disciples, that Jesus can be trusted in the storm.
