Be Still.

Mark 4:33-5:20

Parables and miracles: In Jesus’ miracles, there’s a message for us. We must ask, ‘What does this mean for us?’ In the miracles – calming the storm (Mark 4:35-41) and driving out demons (Mark 5:1-20), there is the message: “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46;10).
We look beyond the storm of wind and waves. We see the storms of life – and we hear Jesus, saying to us, “Be still” (Mark 4:39). He challenges our fears, and He calls us to have faith in Him (Mark 4:40).
Where do the storms come from? – Satan. He’s a determined enemy: “No one was strong enough to subdue him” (Mark 5:4). We need more than positive thinking. We need Jesus – the Saviour. He is strong enough to subdue Satan. Satan is a defeated enemy. We don’t put ourselves together again. Jesus does this for us.
Don’t keep the Good News to yourself. Tell people “what the Lord has done for you and how He has had mercy on you” (Mark 5:19). Your testimony will be blessed: “They were all amazed” (Mark 5:20).
