About finding calm in the storm…
Matthew 8:26 He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27 The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!" (NIV)
Your God is a God of peace. Your Holy Spirit is a spirit bringing peace. Jesus, the Son of God who died such a violent death for you on the Cross, is your Christ who brings you inner peace and calm. In the middle of your storms in life, Christ calls you to worship Him. In the middle of your storms, as you worship Him, Christ brings you calm not found in any other way. As you look up and see Christ's smiling face, you can see the high waves grow calm at His command. If you would just pray and talk to Him, He will answer and give you peace. Your Savior calmed the waters and He will quiet the storm in your life. He will end your turmoil and strife. Christ has command over the seas and if you let Him, He will have command over the storms in your life. Christ has afforded you salvation. In your salvation, you find His peace. In Him, you find a quiet confidence and strength. He will, by His love and the power of His spirit, lift you up over your troubled waters. Be still and know He is with you. Be still and know He is truly your God.
