PEACE, BE STILL (8 OF 17)
Jesus had a very hard, long day and He needed some

This is one of those miracles of the Lord which took

dominion over the world. But when the Lord Jesus came
to the earth, the perfect man had perfect dominion and

I heard someone say several years ago that everybody
is either heading into a storm, is in a storm or is
coming out of a storm. Storms are a part of life.
All of us face storms in our lives from time to time.
So, you may need the lessons that the Lord has for us
in this miracle of calming the angry storm upon the
