Divine Control and True Poise

Calm—unruffled by material evidence of the activity of evil. How we admire one who has such a sense of poise! The one who best proved that man cannot be frightened or disturbed by the activity of evil was Christ Jesus.

We have evidence of this true sense of poise in the incident of the storm on the Sea of Galilee. The Master was peacefully sleeping and was awakened by his disciples, who were frightened by the violence of the storm. They said to him, "Master, carest thou not that we perish?" Mark 4:38; We read: "[Jesus] arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."
