And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
Mark 4:38
 
If Jesus is in your boat, it can’t sink. If He’s in your life, you won’t go down. He has promised to complete the good work He has begun in you (Philippians 1:6). And though the storm might rage, causing you to say, ‘Master, don’t You care that I’m perishing?’ He’s not worried. He’s sleeping — not in apathy, but with great security.

‘The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty,’ Zephaniah tells us. ‘He will rest in His love,’ (Zephaniah 3:17). Thus, concerning the storm you may be going through even now or perhaps will face tomorrow, the Lord is not wondering if you’re going to make it. He’s resting in His love. He knows He’s going to see you through. Therefore, if Jesus is at rest, you can rest as well.
