A furious storm of wind arose, and the waves kept beating into the boat, so that it was already becoming filled. But HE was asleep. – Mark 4:37-38
Do you know why Jesus was able to speak peace to the storm? Because HE never let the storm get on the inside of HIM. The disciples could not calm the storm because they were as disturbed as it was. Remember, you can’t give away something you don’t have, Jesus gave them peace because HE want to be the kind of person who has a soothing effect on people when I get around them. I want to be the kind of person who can walk into a strife filled room, and I don’t have to be in there bu few imnutes, and all of a sudden everyone starts to calm down.
When Jesus walked around on the earth, HE had something going out of HIM – the anointing or the virtue of God, which is the power of God. Something was constantly emanating from HIm that brought healing and hope and slvation to people’s lives. It wasn’t just somehting that God put on HIM, ther was a foundation there of how HE was living HIS life. Yes, HE was anointed, but that anointing was not going to be released if HE didn’t live HIS life right.
THAT’S why satan never upset HIM. HE didn’t let the storms of life get on the inside of HIM. He kept HIS heart peaceful, calm, and loving, And we are to be just like him. 🙂
