After stepping back from the chaos and getting away to pray, Jesus silences the wind and the waves. Notice that before Jesus silences the storm he draws them to faith, to courage. “Take heart, it is I.” Their security isn’t in a storm free life but in his presence. He wanted to be the one that calmed them in the midst of the storm. How are we being drawn to Jesus in the storms of our lives? Remember before all this happened, Jesus took time to pray and commune with the Father.
