Weekend Word: Wind

Friday, January 20, 2012

{Welcome to the weekend! I've chosen a word from my Bible's concordance, and am sharing a few of the related verses. I hope you will consider these verses over the weekend, and perhaps spend some time in the Word finding others. If you don't have a Bible handy, here is a great online version. Till Monday . . . }


Yet when I had surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun. Ecclesiastes 2:11

(Jesus) got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!" Mark 4:39-41

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. Ephesians 4:14-15

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does. James 1:5-7

    I love the power of the Mark 4 verse!  I can imagine, in my mind's eye, what it was like to be in the middle of such a terrifying storm, witness it's quieting and resting in the moment after.  Amazing!!!

  3. I loved this.

  4. I know - it is really something to think about what it would have been like to have been in the middle of that storm with Jesus.
