He commands even the winds
and the water, and they obey Him.
command: to exercise a dominating influence over
Is there something you are facing - whether in your
outer circumstances or in your inner character - that
seems impossible to command? Don't despair. Don't
shrug and give up. Our Lord - your Lord and mine -
can command even the most difficult, unruly thing that
seems as if it will never be commanded. Let His word
"even" be a comfort to you. "He who commands even the
winds and the water" (and they must obey Him) can say
to that "even" of yours, "Peace, be still." And there
will come for you a great calm. Remember, that there is
nothing you are asked to do in your own strength. Not
the least thing, nor the greatest.
