"Mark 4:35-41

Jesus had taught the people in parables.] On that day, when evening came, he said to his disciples, 'Let's cross over to the other side of the lake'. 36So they left the crowds and took Jesus away in the boat just as he was. Other little boats were also with him. 37A stormy wind arose, and waves drove into the boat. It was filling up. 38Jesus was in the stern where he had gone to sleep on a pillow. The disciples woke him and cried, 'Teacher! We are perishing! Don't you care?' ” (Mark 4:35-38).

39Jesus got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, 'Peace, be still'. The wind stopped. There was complete calm. 40Then Jesus said to the disciples, 'Why are you so afraid? Why have you got no faith?' 41But they were extremely scared. They said to one another, 'Who can he be that even the wind and waves obey him?' ” (Mark 4:39-41).

Jesus was crossing the inland sea of Galilee by boat. His disciples were with him. Jesus had gone to sleep. There arose a fierce storm that threatened to sink the boat. The disciples woke him up crying, "Lord, save us, we are perishing!"

Jesus immediately calmed the storm and the waves of lake Galilee with three words: "Peace! Be still!"

This miracle of the stilled storm at Galilee illustrates the power of Christ. However we can also see some important truths about ourselves illustrated by the disciples who were in the storm-tossed boat with Jesus..." from the article: Storm on Galilee
