Dailies-April 2019

Dailies ~ in His Word
April 4, 2019
One day after speaking about the parables of the growing seed and the mustard seed Jesus told his disciples to cross over to the other side of the sea.  He then proceeded to take a nap apparently because his disciples woke Him sometime later asleep on a pillow while water was coming in due to a storm.  The guys woke Him up and cried “Teacher do you not care that we are sinking?”  (Perishing)
Basically they were crying “We’re all going to die!”
Then Jesus arose. He rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. He turned and said to the men, “Why are you so fearful? Why is it that you do not have faith?  Taken from scriptures in Mark 4:35-41                                                                        
It is also found in Matthew 8:23-27 and Luke 8:22-25.
This morning the words that came to me in song were “Peace be still, say the word and I will calm the raging of the seas…” the song goes on to talk about trusting, having faith in Him. Believe. He say’s to believe that it is so, that He will do it and trust Him and believe is what is on my heart today. I am about to embark on an adventure that will not be as exciting if there is not sunshine. I pray today for calm, I feel it in my heart but I trust that My God will calm the seas for me too! If I believe! Sometimes we have to pray “Lord I believe help my unbelief!”  Today I feel the calm that He showed me in the song.
Heavenly Father, show us the calm in our lives today, give is peace to be still and know that You are in the outcome! In Jesus name, amen.
