When we're familiar with the Bible, there is a risk that we will read through it too quickly, missing important key facts. For example, did you remember that Jesus got into a boat and went fast asleep in the midst of a storm?
Most of us would be up wide awake, watching the skies and shuddering at the sound of the howling winds. Worry and fear are not storm-stoppers, but the disciples had Jesus right there with them in the ship, and yet they asked Him this question in Mark 4:38: "... Master, carest thou not that we perish?"
We are so much like the disciples. We have Jesus with us daily, and yet we forget that He is continously able to tell the wind and the waves what to do and when to do it. We forget that He is Almighty because we are not. We try to attribute our weaknesses to Christ, which is a mistake on so many levels.
There are profoundly helpful lessons at the end of the fourth chapter of Mark that will help us to learn how to calm down, and how to rest in a storm. You'll want your Bible handy for this study of Mark 4:35-41. It's deep. Pun intended.
