27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! (Matthew 8:27 KJV)
Amazing! Aren’t you glad that you know a “MAN” who is able to calm the raging winds and seas in your life? A man whom the winds and seas “OBEY?” I know I am, and his name is Jesus Christ.
Do the winds and seas in your life need to be calmed and quieted today? Do you stand in need of peace of mind? Do you feel as if the boisterous winds and the continuous white-capped raging waves hitting the side of your vessel are just more than you can stand? Call out for Jesus… Only HE can calm the winds and seas of life…both physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual…
We all go through storms and seasons of storms within our lives; some more than others…But, we all know what it is like to be sailing on the “sea-of-life” and suddenly be hit by a storm and need a Savior to rescue us from the swelling tides…A Captain well-skilled in taking over our vessel and getting us safely to “the other side.” (Matthew 8)
Some storms in life are more “predictable,” possibly even understandable. But, some storms seem to come out of nowhere and insist on remaining active and thriving for days, weeks, months, and even years…Oh, how these storms rock our vessel and rock our world to the point of feeling as if we are going to fall off the planet! How grateful I am that when “all” seems out of control, I can call on Jesus anytime, anywhere, and any place!
For a Christian believer and follower, Jesus is always aboard our boat; no matter what life’s storms may bring our way…Jesus sails the rough seas right beside me and you…He is well able to get us to the other side…”What manner of man is this that even the winds and seas obey!”
Life’s “winds” and “seas” won’t obey my voice or command, but they do obey God’s. So, by putting my hope, trust, and faith in Him, I know that HE can calm the storms of life and see me to the other side just as He did the disciples that day long, long ago on the Sea of Galilee. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever…A very present help in the time of trouble (need).
Trust Him today; put your faith in Him that no matter what may be happening or taking place, He knows; he understands; and only He can get you to the other side…”Jesus, there’s just something about that name!” Praise Your Holy Name…Amen…
Remember, God Loves You
