“He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.” -Psalm 107:29
This verse shows POWER and PEACE, FEAR and LOVE.
God tells us He can only bring calm. He has the POWER to bring PEACE. We should FEAR His power and focus on LOVE first in order to take in this peace. God LOVES us so much that He wants us to draw in His presence and peace.
We live in a crazy stress-filled world, letting little things bother us, getting distracted by the hustle and bustle of shopping and working.
We can get blown away like a ship in a storm unless we turn to God, who can make all things happen under His power. He commands our temptations and passions to be still. Nothing can give us peace and joy except God and His love.
Think about what’s important in your life. Reduce the time you spend on other things. Turn your hearts and minds toward God.
Your life will be more calm when you put LOVE (for your family, friends, even strangers!) – and FAITH first. When we focus on God and His POWER, when we turn to Him and His teachings, only then can we find lasting peace.
