I read today the story of Jesus calming the storm when his disciples were frightened. No wonder this miracle has such power to impress; certainly the power of the sea is undisputed. Old maps identify sunken ships and divers try to unearth treasure buried under the sea’s sands. Anyone who can control the sea possesses the ultimate power over the planet, which is mostly ocean. How appropriate the same God who created the seas and who parted them to provide land is the God who can calm them or cause them to produce net-breaking loads of fish for his disciples. Heavenly Father, sometimes I forget your sublime power because our relationship is so close and personal. Forgive me for making you too small; help me appreciate your power, your grandeur and your glory—forever. Amen.
