When God Speaks John 14:27; Matthew 8:23-27 What happens when God speaks? Peace comes to the situation. Notice if you will when Jesus and His disciples were on a boat going to Gadara and the Sea of Galilee became turbulent from a raging storm and the men on board concluded that death was imminent, but someone remembered that Jesus was on board (Matthew 8:23-27). Jesus rose and calmly spoke to "the winds and the sea and said to the sea "Peace be still" (Mark 4:39). There was a great calm for they obeyed. God is still speaking to all mankind today. He is speaking through nature and in the quietness of our busy lives a still small voice will speak to the nature of our souls saying "Peace be still I am in control." God spoke to His prophet Elijah in a small still voice, while Elijah was listening for God's voice in the strong wind, the earthquake, and the fire, but God didn't speak then (1 Kings 19:11-13). What does this say about God speaking? God wants our attention and He can use the forces of nature to get it, and then He speaks very quietly. When God speaks all fears, doubts, confusion and discomfort are removed, because He speaks with clarity and authority. God is speaking, I hear Him what about you? Comments are welcome.
