36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Note, in verse 36, there are OTHER ships beside the one Jesus is on.
Jesus not only saved the one ship He was on, but also the convoy!
As Squire Parsons has written, Jesus is truly "The Master of the Sea!"
"One night upon the sea, a ship was tossin' to and fro,
Breakers dashed on every hand, angry winds around did blow.
All on board were filled with fright, as the mighty billows rolled.
Then they called upon the One, Who the winds and waves controlled.
When He reaches out His hand, billows cease at His command.
Winds and waves obey His will, when He says to them "Be still."
What man is this they all did say, that the winds and sea obey?
He's the One that sails with me, He's still The Master of the Sea!"
We are all helpless small things tossing around in life's tempestuous sea.
But with only a WORD, Jesus can calm the sea and save us from the turmoil.
He is within to call upon!
He will not suffer shipwreck!
Though He may point out that our faith is weak, He will never fail to bring us safe to harbour.
Even if our ship is small, it is best to sail with Jesus!
