“And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be Still!’ And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, ‘Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?'” – Mark 4:39-40 (ESV)
A command that the storm be stilled.
A quiet calmness. A steady assurance.
A choice to exhibit faith and trust.
Not of this world.
Not dependent on circumstances.
Not a place for fear.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” – John 14:27 (ESV)
