Have you ever been inside of a small airplane when it’s being jostled by a storm? Have you ever walked into a wind so strong that it redirects you? Have you ever observed a dark, stormy ocean from shore? All of these things are reminders that nature is beyond our control. But that was not the case with Jesus. When Jesus and his disciples were in a boat and encountered an intense storm, the Bible says that Jesus “rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.” (Matthew 8:26) Jesus displayed His sovereignty, even over nature.
