Dear Muslim Friends,
Who rules the sea? Who alone has power over it?
Who tells a violent, dangerous, stormy sea to be still and. . .it happens.
Only Allah, right?
In the Zabur, Psalm 89:8-9, we read these words (similiar to the ones above in the Zabur, Psalm 65:7):
Other verses in the Zabur speaks of God’s power over the sea:
There is an amazing story in the Injil (found in Matthew 8:23-27 and Mark 4:35-41 and Luke 8:22-25):
“Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, ‘Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!’
Jesus responded, ‘Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!’ Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm. The disciples were amazed. ‘Who is this man?’ they asked. ‘Even the winds and waves obey him!'”
Indeed, “Who is this man?”
This is one of the most important questions any human can ever ask: “Who is Jesus?”
Who rules the sea? Is it Allah alone?
Something to think about today, my dear Muslim friends.
As always, I love you. . .
