Wind and Sea

And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.
But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”
And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!” – Mark 4:37-41

Even the wind and the sea obey him. don’t be afraid. don’t doubt. “Do you not care that we are perishing?” Have I not seen Him take care of me time after time, but I still doubt that he cares, I still doubt that he is going to take care of it? Such little faith in such a powerful God. Even the wind and the sea obey Him!

    What an indigtment(sp?) it is for us to know that even the wind and seas obey Him, the stars keep their place in the heavens, the oceans go “here and no further” and yet we hear His word and ignore it. We do not obey. We do not listen, indeed there is much we cannot even hear because our senses are so dull. I am altogether in awe of His power and convicted of my failure.
