The Perfect Storm!

We can find perfect peace in a perfect storm! The story of the perfect storm found in the Gospel of Mark picks up right after Jesus had given a series of sermons. He preached to a crowd of people so large that he had to speak from a boat pushed a short distance into the water. Then in Mark 4:35-41, we read about a perfect storm blowing through on the same waters Jesus preached on. The wind picked up its strength and tsunami type waves began to break over into the boat so that the boat was filling with water. The disciples, some of whom were fishermen and had been on this body of water many times, were terrified. In the middle of all this, Jesus was sleeping on a cushion in the back of the boat. After all that laborious preaching some will think Jesus sleeping in the boat represented his humanity and others say, his divinity. Well, I say both! This perfect storm presented Jesus another opportunity to demonstrate to his then disciples and his today believers that he was more than a teacher; he was and still is a miracle-worker! So today remember there is no perfect storm the God of perfect peace can’t calm!! God is more powerful than even the biggest obstacle, He sees things (in us and in life’s circumstances) that we cannot, and He loves to use seemingly hopeless situations for HIS glory and our good!
