Mark 4:38 "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?"
Have you heard the pillow commercial on TV and Radio with a catchy jingle that says, "For the best night's sleep in the whole wide world, mypillow.com". Now, I’m not endorsing "My Pillow", but I love the concept. You probably didn’t know that My Pillow is the official pillow of the National Sleep Foundation. Founder, Mike Lindell, tells the purpose behind the pillow, "When I invented My Pillow, my dream was to help as many people get a good night's sleep as possible".
In Mark 4:38, it says that Jesus was in the back of a ship sleeping on a pillow in the middle of a storm. I think most of us would be busy bailing water out of the ship, or screaming for help! Not Jesus, He's asleep on a pillow in the middle of the storm. It was the peace that was already on the inside of Him, that allowed Him to sleep through a storm. It was that same peace that was spoken out of His mouth, "Peace, be still", that calmed the storm. Jesus shows us a picture of restful increase. His sleep was evidence of his trust, faith and rest that "all is well".
We have that same peace, the fruit of the Holy Spirit, on the inside of our born again spirit, that is to be exhibited in our actions and our words. When we rest He works, but when we work He rests. More happens when we rest, than when we don't rest. So grab your grace pillow, lay your head down, and rest on the promises of God.
