Peace, Be Still
By Rusty Wilson
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
The sky is dark, there is a storm rising up in the air, rain is falling from the sky. News reports of bad weather is coming. Tornado’s being spotted, the wind is starting to get rough as the weather reporters say take cover. What are you going to do? The Bible says in Mark 4:39, And he arose (Jesus arose) and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. What is this verse telling us? As we use the WORD of God, we speak unto the storm and say, Peace, be still like Jesus did.
As we speak by faith into the wind and storm commanding it to be still and believe in will by faith, it has to cease. Jesus spoke it, so can we. You may say, I have a hard time believing it. Let me assure you it’s true, I’ve experienced it and I know of other believers that have also. We as the body of Christ must take our authority and speak to the storm and commanded it to be still. Telling it to cease in Jesus name, it can be done. As Jesus spoke it, so can we.
There may be storms in your life and they maybe spiritual storms the devil has brought against you. All you have to do is take authority over the storm and command it to cease in Jesus name. Why live in storms when you can be free by commanding it to leave. There are spiritual storms and attacks in our schools with school shooting and other various storms. We need to stand on the WORD of God and speak into the storm and command it to be still. We have the authority to speak it. The storms may seem big and major, but God’s WORD is more powerful and can destroy the storms in your life and others. Tell the storm to leave, because it has to go in Jesus name.
