WAVES OF WORRY

Several years ago a submarine was being tested and had to remain submerged for many hours. When it returned to the harbor, the captain was asked, “How did the terrible storm last night affect you?” The officer looked at him in surprise and exclaimed, “Storm? We didn’t even know there was one!” The sub had been so far beneath the surface that it had reached the area known to sailors as “the cushion of the sea.” Although the ocean may be whipped into huge waves by high winds, the waters below are never stirred.

This, I believe, is a perfect picture of the peace that comes from being in Christ (Gal. 3:27). The waves of worry, of fear, of heartbreak, cannot touch those resting in Christ. Sheltered by His grace and uplifted by encouraging His words in Scripture, a Christian is given the perfect tranquility that only Christ can provide. The apostle Paul declared, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus…I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phil. 4:7, 11).

Shake or Nod!

Have A Great Day!
