CALMNESS IN HIS VOICE
Whenever the storms of life are raging, we need to call on the name of the Lord. There is healing in His voice and we are the recipients of His blessings. It does not matter when we turn to Him, He is always there. Take a moment to reflect over your life and see if there have not been moments when you needed to hear His calming voice. I know that there have been moments in my life when all I could do was call on His name. There seemed to be storms on every side. I am truly grateful for family and friends, but no matter how much they wanted to help, they were inadequate to respond to my urgent need. In Luke 8:24, we find these words:
“The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm.”
As Jesus and the disciples were sailing, Jesus fell asleep. A storm came that rocked the boat and made the disciples fearful, even though the Master was in their presence. Jesus not only calmed the sea, but He calmed the hearts of the disciples. What a wonderful blessing it is to know that the Master can speak to the winds and the waves and they obey! May you be strengthened today with the knowledge that there is no storm that the Lord cannot calm.
