Peace in the Storm

On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”

Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” and the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey him!” Mark 4:35-41

 

 

Father in heaven, we honour and worship your name Yahweh Shalom, Yahweh is Peace. In our uncertain times You are the unchanging God of peace, the source of wholeness in all of life - completeness, welfare and safety.  

Thank You for this record in Your Word which reassures us that You will bring us through the howling winds and storms of life and get us across to the other side. We do not strive for peace but stay our minds upon You. By prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, we make our requests to You and reach out to receive the gift of peace promised to us in Jesus. Thank You that He gives us peace always in every way and is with us all in these anxious times.

We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen
