Some people find peace in their own ways:
Some find solace in their favorite TV Programs
Some in a nice quiet evening with a good book
Some by listening to classical music
Some by going on holiday
Some by going to a place of rest or chapel
Some by visiting a grave yard
Some by sending the kids to bed early
Some by avoiding people altogether
Some on a lake in a boat
Some by going to the opera
Some in themselves
And so on and so forth…..
The disciples were on a boat in a lake, suddenly a raging storm broke out and the disciples were terrified. In all this sudden calamity, screams and terror, Jesus lay sleeping in perfect peace. The disciples had to ask (one could sense with a hint of irritation, bewilderment and anger)…Carest thou not that we perish? It was that scary.
Sometimes when we or others we know of go through rough patches it can seem as though God doesn’t care. Jesus said…..Peace be still,...
We can 'stay on thee' by applying the precise word of God to the situation through prayer and thereafter having the confidence to command the natural status quo, 'peace' to dominate the storm............The spirits of death, fear, calamity, destuction that accompany rough patches will FLEE while the spirit of peace takes over the helm of the boat! He will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee. Isaiah 26:3
Jesus is THE PRINCE OF PEACE!! Isaiah 9:6
