The Waves…

August 31, 2007 at 8:30 am (Biblei-Octopi, Parents) (, , , )

I was reading Abbie’s Princess Bible (thank you Eydie) and we came to a passage discussing the disciples confrontation with the storm.  As you will remember, disciples and Jesus are on the boat, storm brews and slams the boat.  The disciples are freaking out while Jesus is napping.  They finally wake Jesus up and inform him about their impending doom.  Jesus calmly commands the waves and…their is peace.

Princess Bible pointed out that no matter what may happen in life, Jesus has the same control over all situations.  I thought this was a little odd for a devotional aimed at preschool girls, but it was a great point.  It’s so true, we run around like the world is collapsing and where is Jesus?  Probably napping!

I know, he never sleeps…but the truth that Christ can speak a word and the world comes into existence, demons leave a man troubled by legions, a girl gets up from her death bed and the waves stop (just to name a few).  We’ve recently embarked upon a few intimidating paths and it was good to be reminded of the power of Christ.
