But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
— Matthew 8:27 (KJV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
What kind of man? Ah, much more than a man, he is our Lord, King, Messiah, Shepherd, and Savior.
Tender Shepherd and Abba Father, thank you for emptying heaven of your choicest glory and sending Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. As I face the storms in my life, please give me the courage to stand bravely in faith, trusting that my Savior will still the winds and the waves and bring me safely home to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
