[The Glory Unveiled]
Then he [Jesus] climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They [disciples] were completely amazed, ( Mark 6:51 )
The scripture speaks about a time when the disciples had gone on ahead of Jesus after a crusade of some sort. Jesus followed later, after so many hours only to find the disciples straining at the oars because the wind was against them (see, verse 48). In the turmoil of their predicament, the disciples probably tried to handle the situation from their professional perspective as many of them were fishermen. The lesson they learnt which we are also to learn by the grace of God is the fact that, without Jesus, everything is a chaos. But praise be to God, the entrance of Christ in the boat died down the waves. In Genesis 1:2, we discover that the earth was without form and chaotic until God introduced the Word in verse 3, when God said, “let there be… ” The word of God in flesh is Jesus. And where the word of the Lord is, there is freedom. The guarantee for liberty from any life experience we do not want is the word of Christ. Invite the word of God into your circumstances and you’ll see the peace of God.
Prayer_Bead: Heavenly Father, thank you for your word of grace. I invite you into the boat of my circumstances. Let every raging wave die down in Jesus’ name.
