When Storms Rage
The waves crashed over the boat's hull as the storm threatened to capsize it. Water soaked the disciples, and their cold fear matched their cold bodies. They were terrified.
But Jesus, in the midst of the violence, was sleeping peacefully. The disciples woke Him up in a panic. Jesus stilled the storm with a word and turned His attention to the disciples: "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" (Matthew 8:26).
Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is the Author of shalom. When He lived on earth, He lived in shalom, regardless of how much panic swirled all around Him. And He offers this same peace to us in the midst of our storms. Though the oceans of life can rip and roar, the Prince of Peace keeps us calm in the midst of chaos.
How do we experience this kind of unconditional peace? We can only experience God's peace when we believe His Truth. The Prince of Peace who dwells in us through His Spirit can help us rest in His Truth in faith if we ask Him.
When the wind and waves rage, will you place your trust in the Prince of Peace?
Prayer: Prince of Peace, when the storms of life are swirling around me, teach me how to rest in You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you" (Isaiah 26:3).
