Jesus came to share the message of Jubilee - to set all captives free. This is for today as well!
So they shook him awake, saying, “Teacher, don’t you even care that we are all about to die!” Fully awake, he rebuked the storm and shouted to the sea, “Hush! Be still!”
All at once the wind stopped howling and the water became perfectly calm. Then he turned to his disciples and said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Haven’t you learned to trust yet?” But they were overwhelmed with fear and awe and said to one another, “Who is this man who has such authority that even the wind and waves obey him?”
No matter what storm you may be going through, in Him you have the authority to stand above the waves and command them to be still. When we let go of our false sense of control and let him lead us step by step out on the waters, he leads us forth with his eyes as our guide along the pathway for our life.
