In today's Gospel reading from Mark 4, Jesus calmed a storm at sea. His disciples with him in the boat were filled with great awe when they saw even wind and sea obey him. Here is the difference between God and us. When we try to tame something, we try to figure out a way to do it, thinking in terms of a method, a plan, technology, the laws of physics and other sciences, etc. whereas God merely wishes and it is accomplished. Our thoughts dash around in uncertainty, while the Lord knows everything and does all without effort. Understanding this can helps us trust in God even more readily.
