Before the great storm, and before the great calm, JESUS said in Mark 4:35, ..."Let us pass over unto the other side." The other side was there after JESUS rebuked the wind and said unto the sea, "Peace be still." JESUS knew that there was the certainty of the other side. The disciples questioned JESUS - they had doubts but JESUS had said, "Let us pass over unto the other side." JESUS never wavered. The pass over was a done deal as far as JESUS was concerned. He had foreknowledge about the great storm, the wind, and the sea but the other side would be reached, He knew.
JESUS is Master over the fiercest and most troubling storms. They must obey Him. When He orders, "Peace be still," that is what they are - still. When He allows the storms to rage, we can rest and say, "It is well with our souls." His Word promises He will not fail us or forsake us - nor shall we be forgotten by Him.
He was the fourth Man in the fiery furnace with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. The Bible says that the fire had no power - the smell of fire did not even pass on them. (Daniel 3:27) Yet that same fire destroyed the enemies of GOD. The most High was in signature form on mount Carmel with Elijah and the prophets of Baal. The fire of GOD fell and licked up the water that was in the trench. (1 Kings 18). Jezebel's own people threw her down to her destruction when GOD sent his man to handle His holy business. 2 Kings 9:33 states, "And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down:..." Jephthah, the son of an harlot, was used by GOD to subdue His enemies (Judges 11).
When GOD decides that the storms are over - they are over. When He decides that the storms remain - remain they shall - until He accomplishes what is necessary for us to bear fruit, and more fruit for our profit that we may partakers of His hoiliness (Hebrews 12:10). When, for His purposes, He allows us to be in the storms, as He was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, so He is with us in our storms. He always makes a way of escape for His faithful. 1 Corinthians 10:13, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:
Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid;...
