Peace Be Still
He arose and rebuked the
wind, and said to the sea,
"Peace, be still!"
What do we do when we are atruck in a troubling
situation? Maybe, like the disciples who were stuck
in a life- threatning storm, we run to Jesus. Sometimes,
however, we may try to bail ourselves out of trouble
by seeking revenge, slandering the one who has caused
our problem, or just cowering fearfully in the corner as
we sink into despair.
We need to learn from the disciples who fled
to Jesus as their only hope. He may not bail us
out immediately, but remembering that He is
our boat makes a differance! Thankfully, He is
always with us in the storms of life, saying things
"Peace, be still!" So, look for Him in your storm
and let Him fill you with the peace that comes
from knowing He is near.
Lord, teach us to run to You in the midst of trouble.
Forgive us for trying to bail ourselves out, and lead
us to the peace of trusting Your wisdom and ultimate
deliverance. Thank You that You will help us!
Make Jesus your first option when
the storms of life threaten you.
In His Love!
