Luther was riding a big wave & it took courage & conviction to paddle out to meet it. Ordinarily around here when I see the power displayed in an ocean it’s small in comparison to other oceans, seas & storms & unlike the parable of the wise man & the foolish man which holds an eternal spiritual truth .Psalm 46. takes on the bigger scale where even the mountains fall into the sea. One thing remains the same however. Both point to & have their foundation in Christ.
To be still & to know that God is God cannot come from our mind or will. It is to be found in Christ alone & requires faith which is a gift from God. Eph 2:8.
