That day when evening came, He 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?” They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey Him!” MARK 4:35-41

In many Bibles, the heading above this text says "Jesus Calms the Storm." But when the waves calmed down and became a glassy sea...and the wind died down to a whisper, the storm in the disciples' hearts was just beginning to blow. "Who is this"? It terrified them to think they'd been traveling not just with a rabbi, a teacher, a healer, a preacher... but with the Lord God Himself. The One who not only created the sea that they had been getting tossed on, but the Creator of the universe, the world and all of mankind! The One who was written of...centuries earlier.

Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the Lord, His wonderful deeds in the deep. For He spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven. Psalm 107 23-30

The storm in the hearts of the disciples was this: Jesus was so much more than they expected. They could hardly take it all in! Come to think of it...Jesus is always more than we expect, isn't He? But sometimes it takes a storm for us to fully understand. The gift is that Jesus is in the boat with us; He's not standing on the shore shouting "row harder!" He is with us in our storms, both the ones He calms and the ones He brews in our hearts.

INSIGHT: "It Is Well With My Soul"  Perhaps one of the most influential and enduring of the Christian Hymns which was written by Horatio G. Spafford in 1873 after the death of his only son from scarlet fever...after the great Chicago fire of 1871 which consumed his possessions and ruined him financially: "WHEN SORROWS LIKE SEA BILLOWS ROLL; WHATEVER MY LOT, THOU HAST TAUGHT ME TO SAY, IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL."

Dear Lord, Help me to realize that the storms in my life are "brewed" by Jesus so I will draw close to Him. I want to rely on Him to calm the storms in my life. I want to be able to say "It is well with my soul" in all situations. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
