It is recorded that after Jesus had stilled the tempest immediately "there was a great calm."

"Peace, be still," to every form of fear and strife, is the Christdecree. It is the law of dominion to everything that claims lawlessness, violence, uncontrol. It is the spiritual fact made manifest that in the realm of Mind there is no resistance, no opposition, no unrest. In conscious oneness of being, continuously expressing itself, are ordered tranquillity and perfect co-ordination. Here every thought and action is obedient to one impulse, one mandate, one purpose. Neither fear nor uncertainty enters in. On pages 19 and 20 of her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 Mary Baker Eddy writes, "Christ walketh over the wave; on the ocean of events, mounting the billow or going down into the deep, the voice of him who stilled the tempest saith, 'It is I; be not afraid.'" Men find calmness, they experience the "Peace, be still" to every presentation of evil, to every suggestion of fear, to every form of rebellion, when the "It is I" of the Christ is heard and welcomed.
