Have you ever been in a serious thunderstorm. . .or maybe even a hurricane or tornado?
I’ve never been in a tornado but I have been through a couple of hurricanes and many serious thunderstorms.
During our time in Texas. . .it was not unusual to have thunderstorms with 60-70 mile an hour winds and frequent lightning strikes. I remember one storm where there were over 1,000 lighting strikes in an hour.
When serious storms come up. . .we’re looking for a safe place.
How would you react if you were in the middle of the sea when a violent storm arose?
Mark 4:37 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:
“And a furious storm of wind [of hurricane proportions] arose, and the waves kept beating into the boat, so that it was already becoming filled.”
The disciples and Jesus were crossing the Sea of Galilee when a violent storm began to rage. The disciples were frightened, fearful and faithless in the midst of what they perceived to be a potentially, deadly situation.
