“They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.” - Psalms 107:23-24.

Comment:

In one occasion when Jesus Christ was in a boat with his disciples, the devil raised a great tempest in the sea “in so much that the sea was covered with the waves: but he was asleep”.  His disciples came to him and woke him up saying: “Lord, save us: we perish”.  Christ rebuked the disciples saying: “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?”.  Then he arose and rebuked the wind and the sea and there was a great calm.  The disciples should have known that it was the devil that was at work but that God had the power to bring to nought the evil devices of Satan the Devil.  King Solomon says: “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”(Proverbs 24:10).  St. Paul stated, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32).  So whatever may be the storm that the devil may bring, we should take them to God in prayer and believe firmly that he would solve the problem. The Scriptures say: “He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.” - Psalms 107:29, 30.
