" Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever"( Hebrews 13:8)
In ( Matthew 8: 23-27) The Holy Scripture tells of Jesus’ calming the storm on the lake. From these few verses, we can rightly conclude a couple of truths. 1) that Jesus, as the son of God, has authority over the elements of nature, and 2) That the disciples may have had weak faith for being afraid.
We all have had fearful occasions in our lives, when from a human standpoint, we just knew the whole world was collapsing around us.
The Apostle Paul had these moments, as well. That's why, under the direction of God's Holy Spirit, he penned these words. ( 2 Timothy 1:7)
You see, our all knowing Heavenly Father knows our fears before they are fixed in our imagination. That's why, by His perfect love, all our fears can be conquered. ( 1 John 4:18)
So, why not return love to Him ( Joshua 23:11), in the form of faith? ( Hebrews 11:1,6)
Yes, the encouragement of Jesus is still as real today, as it was in olden times. Peace Be Still. ( Mark 4:35-41)
Peace be Still
Speak softly as the night fears rush, My spirit not to crush
Calm raging waters of my heart, Let rushing winds of sin depart
Never to go from You astray, As tightly in your arms I stay
With the day break proudly shinning, In Your Spirit now abiding
Looking to join Your upward call, Never more the earthly draw
So let the storms rage on, In Your good time I will be gone
Are you ready for life's storm, In Him your life to conform
Just take God's free grace, by your faith sin will be replaced
Shout Hallelujah in your praise, as the Spirit sets your heart ablaze
Peace Be Still
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
