Mark chapter 4, verses 37 and 38: “And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 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?'”
When I was a boy, I remember an old country song; it was called “Send me the pillow that you dream on.” I suppose in some way it speaks to you and I about longing, and about love and about rest. But, though in a storm, Jesus had total confidence in the love and keeping power and the faithfulness of His Father. His confidence in the storm should be the envy of our hearts.
In our seasons of trial, we would do well to cry out, not about our perishing, but for the place of rest where His perfect love promises to calm all of our fears.
It’s time to pray
