Bible Verse for Today
“He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.” (Mark 4:39)
What Jesus did first in this verse of the scripture when a strong wind was blowing, was to have faith. He believed he has the power to calm every storm of life in whatever form they may come and then he utilized the power. The second thing was to command the storm to be quiet. As Christian, a child of God, we are not expected to be frightened when there is a storm. We have Jesus who has the power to stop the storm. The disciples of Jesus cried onto him when the storm came.
So also we Christians, when there is a storm, the first thing we should do is to cry onto Jesus for help. When Jesus was in the boat, the storm was so great that it could wake Jesus but he kept sleeping until the disciples cried out for help. Jesus is expecting us to call on him so he can calm our storms for us. Don’t be afraid of the storm when it comes, they will surely come in form of anything such as frustration and sometimes failure – you standing strong in the storms of life with Christ against them.
