1 Kings 19:1-21; Jeremiah 31:1-40; Hebrews 2:1-18

Master, carest thou not that we perish? Mark 4:38

Raging winds caused high waves on Lake Galilee to rise above
the little boat carrying the sleeping Man of Galilee. Troubled
disciples, some fishermen, were alarmed and cried, “Master, carest
thou not that we perish?”. Did He care? Assuredly so! In His care
for them and us, He had left heaven to live with them. His care
had brought Him to that very situation. From the stern of their
little craft, He commanded the waves to subside, and calmness
returned. Thankfully, He rides in the little boat of your life and
mine, and He bid the turmoil of life’s troubled sea to respond to
His voice of command. —Arnot P. McIntee

When we are faced with trials sore, He’s just a prayer away.
He’ll calm the storm and give you peace, your night He’ll turn to day.
