Peace, Be Still (Matthew 8:23-27)

Jesus and his disciples were in a boat.  A massive storm started to toss the boat about and the waves were crashing onto the boat.

The disciples were terrified and frantic.  They called out to Jesus, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” (ESV)

Jesus asked the disciples, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” (ESV)

Jesus calmed the storm and the disciples were amazed by his power.  In Mark 4:39, we learn Jesus calmed the storm and said, “Peace!  Be Still!” (ESV)

I wonder if those words were said not just to calm the storm, but also to calm the disciples.  Whenever you feel like you are about to drown and anxiety is overwhelming you, remember the words of Jesus, “Peace!  Be Still!” (ESV)
