Peace, Be Still

The wind whipped up so quickly and unexpectedly the fishermen barely had time to lower the sails before they were torn to shreds. Lightning flashed. Thunder clapped. Rain pelted the fishermen, soaking their clothes and blurring their vision. Angry waves cracked against the side of the small fishing vessel threatening to splinter it to pieces. The boat was tossed about on the raging sea like a leaf blown in the wind. The fishermen, fear widening their eyes, clung to anything they could reach that was securely fastened to the deck.

“Where’s the master?”

“He’s sleeping in the bow.”

“Well wake him! We’re going to die!”

A figure emerges, stands defiantly, steadily, as the rain beats against his face and the howling wind whips at his hair. He raises a hand. Lightning flashes. Thunder claps.

“Peace, be still.”

The wind falls silent. The clouds hold their rain. The sea becomes as smooth as glass. Peace prevails.

Is there a storm raging within you? Have the winds of despair whipped up? Does a downpour of frustration batter your will to continue. Do waves of fear wash over you, threatening to drown what little hope remains? We all suffer at the claws of storms that suddenly and unexpectedly beat upon our soul and we cling to any glimmer of hope in an attempt to weather the angry storm. Lightning flashes. Thunder claps. Our tiny boat of earthy security is rocked viciously and threatens to go belly up. And all the while we cry out in confusion, “Where’s the master?”

Rest assured, He is there. He is always there. And when fear overcomes us and despair floods our soul, when the storms of life become too violent for us to endure and we realize we can cling to nothing else but Him, He emerges, lifts that holy hand, and says calmly, “Peace, be still . . . and know that I am God.”

Jesus is the only one that can calm those crashing waves, silence the howling wind, and shut up the heavy clouds. Only He holds the power to bring peace and calm to our restless soul. Call on Him, place your faith in Him and Him alone and He will rescue you from the tempest and bring a peace to your souls that surpasses all understanding.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
