Several years ago a submarine was being tested and had to remain submerged for many hours. When it returned to the harbor, the captain was asked, “How did the terrible storm last night affect you?” The officer looked at him in surprise and exclaimed, “Storm? We didn’t even know there was one.”
The sub had been so far beneath the surface that it had reached the area known to sailors as “the cushion of the sea.” Although the ocean may be whipped into huge waves by high winds, the waters below are ever stirred.
Even though the waves of the world surround us each day, as Christians, we remain calm and secure in the cushion of Jesus — He blesses us with peace.
(Psa 85:10) Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.
(Psa 85:11) Truth shall spring out of the earth, And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
(Psa 85:12) Yes, the LORD will give what is good; And our land will yield its increase.
(Psa 85:13) Righteousness will go before Him, And shall make His footsteps our pathway.
