And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith? – Mark 4:35-40 <KJV>
Jesus Calms The Storm - Summary
Jesus told his disciples to cross the Sea of Galilee. They had his Word that they would reach the other side. But then Satan came immediately to steal the Word, by attacking the ship with a storm. Some of the disciples were experienced fishermen who had spent a lifetime on the Sea of Galilee and should not have been so easily frightened. But this was no ordinary storm. There was something evil in both its timing and in its ferocity.
Instead of trusting in the Word, the disciples cried out to Jesus who was asleep, “Don’t you care?”
Of course Jesus cared, He is love! He said that they would go to the other side, where he had a divine appointment to heal a demon-possessed man who would be a witness to the love and power of God throughout the area. Satan was trying to derail this assignment.
Jesus woke up and spoke to the wind and waves, “Peace, be still.” And then there was a great calm. Jesus spoke the Word (Psalm 107:28-30) and the storm had to calm down immediately.
He asked his disciples why they had no faith. Any of them could have released their faith and calmed that storm, but they were overcome with fear which is the opposite of faith.
There will always be storms in life, both literal and figurative ones. How you react to them will determine if you are victorious. The disciples could have professed confidence in the Word of Jesus and provided an awesome testimony to the power of their faith. Instead, the stilling the storm miracle is a cautionary tale on how fear might sink the plans that God has for you.
You have the Word of God and the Holy Spirit inside you. Don’t ever doubt God’s love for you. Real faith is trusting in the love God has for you. If you doubt God’s love, how can you believe any of His promises? The ultimate lesson to learn from the story of Jesus calming the storm is that all things are possible if you believe. But fear will prevent you from receiving the miracle you need. Study the Word and the calming the storm miracle. God loves you. He will never let you fail if you trust Him.
“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves. What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! – Psalm 107:28-30 <NLT>
