“And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. But the men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!”
During his life on earth, Jesus performed many miraculous healings. He healed lepers, He restored sight to the blind, He cast out evil spirits, and He even raised the dead.
Jesus showed us through these miracles that He is the Son of God, and He has power over all things.
Though Jesus may not always heal the sickness and sufferings we face in life, He has power to bring us peace. When we face our challenges with faith in Jesus Christ, He gives us strength and a special kind of peace that replaces our fear with calm.
