Jesus- The Storm Calmer


The Bite

Mark 4:39-40

39 And He got up and [sternly] rebuked the wind and said to the sea,“Hush, be still (muzzled)!” And the wind died down [as if it had grown weary] and there was [at once] a great calm [a perfect peacefulness].40 Jesus said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?”

Jesus and his disciples were in the boat to cross the lake, this fierce storm comes up filling the boat with water. Meanwhile, Jesus is knocked out sleep with head on a cushion. His disciples wake him up shouting, “Don’t you care that we about to drown”?

The Digest:

Our bite then states:

Jesus woke up. He rebuked the wind. SHUT IT down! with his voice. Silence! Be still! The Amplified Translation states Hush!

The winds obeyed his voice and were calm. (perfect peacefulness)

Jesus asked his Disciples: Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?

They didn’t even realize, they were with the Captain of the Sea, the Storm Calmer himself.

Ladies, Is there a storm in your life that you need Jesus to come and tell Hush! And Shut it Down?

How are you responding to the storm that comes into your life? Are you screaming at Jesus to save you? Have you failed to realize He has already done just that for you?

He is waiting to see what kind of faith you have! Will he have to ask the question? Do you still have NO Faith?

The Chew:

There is no fear of the storms in our life when we can call on the Calmer of the Storm.
