Peace be still!, is the authority over problem, not the absence of trouble, and JESUS CHRIST is the only one who has the right to exercise that authority. Even the elements of nature testified to His power.According to what is written, “And He rose, rebuked the wind, and said, Peace, be still, to the sea. And there was a significant quiet once the wind stopped.

Mark 4:39 . I refer to this as the “Authority of peace.” Storms indeed exist, but our tranquility is more tangible. These things, as it is written, “I have spoken unto you, that ye might have peace in me,” You will experience hardship in this world, but take heart, I have overcome the world. John 16:33. In other words, safety is guaranteed, even though a life devoid of storms is not promised.

What did Jesus mean when He said, “Peace, be still!”?

In Mark 4:39, Jesus says, “Peace, be still,” according to the King James, New King James, and English Standard Versions. In various translations, the phrase is slightly different: “Quiet! “Hush, be still” and “Be still” (New International Version) (New American Standard Bible).

Near the end of Mark 4:35–41, Jesus issues the following directive: “When nightfall had arrived, he said to them, ‘Let us move across to the other side.'” They took him in the boat with them after leaving the crowd in exactly the same condition. Along with him were other vessels.

The boat was already filling up when a strong windstorm came up and the waves began to crash onto it. But he was dozing off on the cushion at the stern.

Do you not care that we are dying, teacher? they asked him when they woke him up. He then awoke, chastised the wind, and wished the sea peace. Keep still. After the wind stopped, there was a profound calm.

Why are you so terrified, he asked them. Do you still lack faith? Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? they wondered aloud as they were overcome by intense fear. (ESV)

Jesus gave the order “Peace, be still” to quell a nocturnal storm on the Sea of Galilee. According to the scripture, Jesus chastised the storm, telling it to settle down in a manner similar to how a teacher might urge a roomful of rowdy pupils to behave.

The disciples were in wonder as the waves and wind actually followed orders! They had a hint as to who Jesus really was from the authority He displayed.

A deeper examination reveals that the disciples were also wallowing in the storm. The worried disciples woke up Jesus as he was dozing off in the boat and addressed him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” (Mark 4:38).

Lack of trust was seen in the disciples’ “raging” in the midst of the violent storm. Don’t you care? was another indignant insult to Jesus’ persona that they asked. Jesus naturally had concern for them. They should have known that they would succeed because Jesus had instructed them to cross to the opposing side. Fear should have been reduced by the knowledge that He was with them.

It’s important to keep in mind that the disciples were still developing their religion before we judge them too harshly. Even while they may have doubted Jesus’ concern for them, at least they believed He was capable of taking action. This demonstrates that they were aware of His enormous strength and authority.

If there are thirteen persons in a small boat in the middle of a fierce storm, and twelve of them approach the thirteenth and beg him to “Please, do something about this storm,” they must have believed the thirteenth guy possessed special skills.

“Everyone speaks about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it,” the novelist Charles Dudley Warner once remarked. Jesus is the only one who has the power to change things, and He can.

Jesus chastises the storm and then asks the disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still not believe? (Mark 4:40). He was essentially telling the disciples to “Peace, be still.” “Slow down. I was always in total command.

We need to keep in mind that Jesus is always in control of our situations and, when we trust Him, He will quiet the raging inside our minds as we read the tale of Him saying, “Peace, be still” today.

Philippians 4:6-7 instructs us on what to do when we find ourselves raging and tossing and turning internally: “Do not be worried about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, submit your requests to God. And in Christ Jesus, the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will protect your hearts and minds.

When it is wonderful when the storm that is around us subsides, it is much more crucial for our souls to remain calm while the storm is still raging. God has not promised to calm every storm, but if we will put our trust in Him to provide for us, He will give us peace during any storm.

Benton’s tune “Sometimes He Calms the Storm” This truth is brilliantly expressed by Kevin Stokes and Tony W. Wood:

On occasion, He quiets the storm.
a soft “Peace, be still” is whispered.
Even if He is capable of settling any sea, He may not.

He holds us tight at times while allowing the wind and waves to blow wild; other times, He calms the storm while at other times, He soothes His child.

Peace Be Still Verse Meaning

John Gill writes, “He arose from his pillow and stood; and in a majestic and authoritative way reprimanded the wind, as if it were a servant who had exceeded his commission; at which he shows some resentment: as if that which was very tumultuous and boisterous, and threatened with shipwreck and the loss of lives, had raged too much and too long:

which was extremely unusual and extraordinary because, after the wind has stopped blowing and the storm has passed, the agitated sea waters continue to rage and move violently for a considerable amount of time; however, here, as soon as the word was spoken, immediately, at once, the wind stopped blowing and the sea was calmed:

This is a blatant indication that the person who can gather the winds in his fists and silence the roar of the seas and their waves must be the Most High God.

In other words, the wind appears to want to oppose Jesus when he chastises it. The disciples were aware that many sailors had lost their lives in this specific body of water due to storms. Jesus, though, is unfazed. He says to the waves, “Peace, be still,” without even a hint of hesitation.

The phrase “Peace be still” serves as a reminder that even during the worst storms, God has everything under control.

Jesus’ Peace vs. Our Peace

And be thankful; let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which you were also called in one body (Colossians 3:15).

This scripture explains the qualities God expects of us. No matter how simple or complex the issue, we are to have inner serenity. Life is generally not simple. We are born sinners in a mortal body (Psalm 51:1), but Jesus has given us new life.

Due to all that is happening in the world right now, how we define our tranquility depends only on how we see life. We cannot have peace if we constantly compare our viewpoints to those of the rest of the world.


We constantly receive news of danger and grief from the outside world. As a result, if we regularly consume the news, we are missing out on the work that God has given us to undertake. God has commanded us to “let the word of Christ dwell in us,” in other words (Colossians 3:16).

Really, it’s up to us; it’s free will. Either we let His Word to dwell in us, or we allow everything else to rob us of the unfailing peace that Christ offered to us.

So let’s dissect this a little. In our minds and in our hearts, we are aware of what peace is. But we don’t comprehend that we believe we understand what peace is. In our daily lives, we can see examples of the tranquility we are familiar with.

Every part of our lives is peaceful every day. It is something we hear, feel, and see. We find comfort in peace no matter what the situation. But do we actually comprehend what peace is? Peace comes from Jesus (John 16:33). We don’t necessarily walk in His peace each and every day.

We have established a peace of our own. Yes, we are aware that Jesus is our source of peace, but once more, we are not fully cognizant of this. We might never fully comprehend it. However, perhaps it’s time to set aside the definition of peace that has become deeply established in our hearts and brains.

Let’s ask for the peace that Jesus has given us in prayer. Let’s pray that He will be the only one to whom we give up our own peaceful nature.

The Power of the Tongue

The tongue has the capacity to both kill and save, and those who love it will consume its output (Proverbs 18:21).

Most of us eventually get on the worry bandwagon. Worry breeds negativity, deception, and terror. As we continue to ride that train of worry, pessimism is on the way. Get off that train, because I experience it most of the time.

Your mind picks up on pessimistic thought patterns, and the fruit it produces will cause you to live in continual anxiety. Because focusing on the flesh is death, focusing on the spirit is life and peace, according to Romans 8:6. Our flesh is our thoughts.

Therefore, if peace is not at all included, you will continue to ride that train. Personally, I’d really like to get off this bad train of emotions, anxieties, and lies. This is a topic that has lately come to my attention because, if I don’t get off this train, I won’t ever genuinely experience the peace that Jesus offers.

If you struggle like I do, I implore you to start thinking positive thoughts. Because the enemy will try everything to get you back on that train, read God’s Word frequently.

According to 2 Timothy 1:7, “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid, but gives us power, love, and self-control,” God has given us self-control. Let’s employ it!

Prayer of Conclusion

Father, I offer prayers for everyone who is experiencing worry. I ask that we get off this train and spend every day in your Word. I ask that everyone whose thoughts are uneasy find comfort in your Son, Jesus.

We are grateful to the Lord for giving us life and the ability to praise him. God, only you can give us peace. Amen, in the name of Jesus.
