Once, when I was crossing the Sea of Galilee with My disciples, a storm arose and threatened to sink our small boat. My disciples were frightened, but I commanded the storm to cease—“Peace! Be still!”—and the wind and waves obeyed Me.[ See Mark 4:35–39.] One day, I will cause the storms of this world to cease, and dry the eyes of the downtrodden and those who have been cruelly tormented.
In the meantime, you can have real and lasting peace in your heart—peace that can withstand anything—by receiving Me as your Savior and turning to Me in your time of need. “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”[John 16:33 NLT] I will always be there for you.
