One Good Thing Every Day: March 14, 2013

Ecclesiastes 10:4b NIV

Calmness can lay great offenses to rest.


Psalm 46:10a NIV

“Be still, and know that I am God….”


“Learn to take minibreaks from the world, finding a place to be still in My Presence and listen to my voice.” from Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence


Matthew 8:25-26 NIV

The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”

He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.


“When the storms of life overtake us, we often respond as if God does not exist or does not care. Jesus rebuked the disciples for their failure to recognize His presence, protection, and power, not for their human tendency to fear.” from Henry T. Blackaby’s Experiencing God


It is easy to judge the disciples for their lack of faith. Afterall, Jesus sat in their boat! How could He be more present?

Yet, why do I panic in the middle of life-storms? Afterall, the Holy Spirit sits within my soul! How could He be more present?
