They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep – Psalm 107:23, 24
When you see some of the waves, you can’t help but marvel. Some are as high as skyscrapers. Imagine seeing what looks like an impenetrable wall of water surging towards you. Those who are in ships see and experience firsthand God’s majesty and power in those surging and crashing waves. “He stirs up the sea with His power and by His understanding He breaks up the storm. For He commands and raises the stormy wind, Which lifts up the waves of the sea” (Job 26:12; Psalm 107:25).
And the sea is so vast. Large marine life like the humpback whale and the whale shark look like specks of dust in the sea when you view them from the air. Yet, God is Master over the sea. “Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord. ‘Will you not tremble at My presence,
Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea, By a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it? And though its waves toss to and fro, Yet they cannot prevail; Though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it” (Jeremiah 5:22).
Yes, the sea can be very intimidating because of its vastness, unfathomable depth and massive waves but the LORD on high is mightier Than the noise of many waters, Than the mighty waves of the sea (Psalm 93:4). Isn’t it comforting to know that this God is the same One who takes care of us? He is mightier than any storms or troubles we may face in life.
