Mark 4:38-41 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
The disciples had walked with the Lord, seen Him perform miracles, heard Him teach, and watched His amazing works. However, for some reason, they didn’t see Jesus for Who He was. It wasn’t until this act that they “feared exceedingly”. He was no longer just another man with some miracles up His sleeve. He was something special. He was God in the flesh. And when they got a glimpse of Who He was and what He could do, they feared Him.
It’s easy for us to “walk with God” daily, be in His Word, and even in some prayer, without really getting a hold of Him and seeing Him for Who He is and what He can do. My prayer this morning is that I would walk closely with God, and as Isaiah, see Him high and lifted up, and for Who He really is. For when I do, I will have the fear and honor of Him that I ought, which will cause me to live the way He desires.
