The Oil Of Joy - Peace be Still
39 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.
Every story written in the bible contains spiritual keys to help us in our physical lives. One of these is the story of the disciples crossing the sea because Jesus told them to do so. They expected everything to be easy because they were obedient and they had Jesus in the boat. However on the way a great storm arose. They tried all the physical methods and only called on Jesus as a last resort. When He arose He just spoke to the storm and it calmed down. Then He confronted them for being fearful.
How often do we take our initial instructions from God after which we take matters into our own hands. There are two things we can learn from this story, God will not take over until we ask Him and He cannot work for us until we stop what we are doing and surrender. During those times Jesus was there to speak the right words, but in our times we must listen and let Him speak the right words through us. If we are struggling with any storm today. It is time to quit worrying and say, ‘Peace be still in my job, marriage, ministry in Jesus Name.
SPEAK THE WORDS GOD GIVES YOU TO SILENCE THE VOICE OF THE STORM
Prayer: Father, I thank You that You cause the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea are hushed in Jesus Name. Amen
( Psalm 107:29 paraphrased)
