Mark 4:35-41 (NKJV) 35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” 39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
Why were the disciples so afraid? They said, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!” They did not know? That is amazing, how can it be that they did not know. They were afraid because the wind and the sea immediately obeyed Jesus’ command. Only God can have such command over creation. And as such, this is another evidence of Jesus’ deity. The disciples did not fully understand the deity of Jesus Christ. Even today, there are many who do not understand the deity of Jesus Christ. In fact, some even deny the deity of Jesus. But who can control creation? No one but the Creator. And see that God may allow us to enter the storms of life in order for us to see His power to calm the storms. So that we may grow closer to Him and that we might know Him more.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
