"And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling...Then He (Jesus) arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm." Mark 4: 37, 39 (NJKV)
The LORD, Creator of the heavens and the earth, is in control of all things. He is in control of the winds and the waves. He is in control of all storms of life... yours and mine. And He is able to speak "Peace, be still!"
As I write, Hurricane Irene is unleashing its fury along the eastern coast of the United States. But even a hurricane must obey the Lord God Almighty!
Sovereign God, You are Creator and in control of all things! Have mercy God! We ask You to weaken and redirect the storm away from heavily populated areas. We praise You Lord that even the winds and the waves must obey You! Please put a hedge of protection around residents of the east coast! In the Name of Jesus, we plead, "Peace, be still!"
And may our Father God in heaven speak peace into your situation. Let it be LORD!
