"They were terrified and asked each other, 'Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!'"
Who is this? This is a question all believers must come to ask. It’s one of the most important questions, and all of Scripture whispers the answer (see Luke 24:27). The storm in the hearts of the disciples was this: Jesus was so much more than they expected. They could hardly take it all in!
Jesus is always more than we expect, isn’t He? But sometimes it takes a storm for us to fully understand. The gift is that Jesus is in the boat with us; He’s not standing on shore shouting “row harder!” He is with us in our storms, both the ones He calms and the ones He brews in our hearts.
"WHEN SORROWS LIKE SEA BILLOWS ROLL; WHATEVER MY LOT, THOU HAST TAUGHT ME TO SAY, IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH
