Jonah 1:5 ERV “The men wanted to make the boat lighter to stop it from sinking, so they began throwing the cargo into the sea. The sailors were very afraid. Each man began praying to his god. Jonah had gone down into the boat to lie down, and he went to sleep.”

Imagine sleeping in the storm, I mean one that made them throw the cargo into the sea and pray to their gods for safety; how was Jonah able to remain asleep in such an environment? Jesus too didn’t wake up in a similar situation. Matthew 8:23-24 says that “Jesus got into a boat, and his followers went with him. After the boat left the shore, a very bad storm began on the lake. The waves covered the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.” He was still sleeping even when the waves had covered the boat! Wow!

There are, and will always be storms in life that come in different ways; they could arise in our families, offices, communities, countries, etc; as a child of God, that’s not a time to panic as other men: you can remain asleep while others are running helter skelter! In other words, remain calm. God said, “Be still, and know that I am God.” Hallelujah!

Psalms 119:165 KJV “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” It’s possible to have great peace both within and around you. They that dwell in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty! Psalms 46:1-3 says, “God is our protection and source of strength. He is always ready to help us in times of trouble. So we are not afraid when the earth quakes and the mountains fall into the sea. We are not afraid when the seas become rough and dark and the mountains tremble.” That should be your testimony! Glory to God!
