Mark 4:35-41
It had been a rather busy day for the Lord Jesus. He had taught the people the Word of God.
Now in the same boat which He had used for a pulpit He pushes out from shore and says to
the disciples, "Let's go to the other side." So as they are making their preparations to
launch the boat, the Lord Jesus goes to the back part of the ship, lays His head down upon
a pillow and so very tired, He went to sleep. Isn't that a wonderful picture there. Here is
the great God, the great master of this universe, yet he is in a little boat, asleep on a

Jesus calms a storm in the midst of the human heart. I find this particular miracle very
illustrative of life, itself. Here is a picture of life as a voyage on a sea, a picture of
storms which come up unexpectedly in your life and in mine. I have the feeling that probably
there is some of you, if I really could just know what was in your heart, you would say to
me, "Preacher, that is exactly my situation today. I'm going through a storm, my life's
ship is being tossed to and fro by the waves of adversity. Preacher, I'm in a storm just lik(
Jesus and the disciples were on the Sea of Galilee." I want to just take this passage of
Scripture and apply it to your life ...
