Jesus Christ Calms the Storm

     For those of us that have been brought up in the church, we often read the miracles of Jesus and go "ho hum."  We have heard it so often before, that it fails to impress.  We know what is going to happen.  It is like reading about the invasion of Normandy.  We know how it is going to turn out, so the wonderment of it is lost.  But Eisenhower had prepared a statement in case the invasion had failed.
     Last night and this morning, Norfolk experienced a storm.  Normally we like to sleep with our windows open, but the wind was howling so much, it was creating quite a racket.  Branches were breaking and crashing to the ground.  We had to close the windows.  To have God calm the storm would indeed have been a great miracle.  We must read the Scriptures in a fresh new way. 

Lord God, we ask that the Holy Spirit would open our eyes to what the Scriptures say.  Please let us see Your Word in a new way.

Re: Jesus Christ Calms the Storm

I love the line in one of George MacDonald's poems that says "faith opens all windows to God's wind." It's counter-intuitive, but "walking by faith and not by sight" is. Life becomes wonderfully unpredictable and exciting ... because the One we follow loves us and His plan is "good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2. Now, don't get me wrong ... I'm not saying to literally open your windows! ... but we need to all joyfully accept God's "rain" (or reign) in our lives ... whatever He wills in our lives for our good and, above all, to His glory!
