Remain Calm

“That day when evening came, [Jesus] said to his disciples, ‘Let us go over to the other side.’ Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?’ He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, ‘Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?’” (Mark 4:35–40, NIV 1984).

My Musings – We’re all in the same boat.  When the winds of adversity come around, threatening (so it seems) to swamp us, we have a tendency to cry out  “LORD, don’t you care if we drown?”  Forgetting what He has already done for us.  Forgetting the many promises contained in His word.

My Advice – Rest on His promises.  Trust in His Word.  “Why are [we] so afraid? Do [we] still have no faith?’
