There You Are, Jesus!

For the past 3 months I’ve been reading through Psalms one at a time at the beginning of my morning prayer time. I’m up to Psalm 65 today. As I came to verse 7 of this beautiful Psalm I paused and reread it, then thought to myself, “There You are, Jesus!”

I love finding Jesus in the Old Testament and seeing how the Old and New Testaments are so intimately connected. Here is Psalm 65:7 in the New King James Version that I was reading:

You who still the noise of the seas,
The noise of their waves,
And the tumult of the peoples.

This verse reminded me of the story of Jesus in the boat with His disciples as recorded in Matthew 8:

Jesus Calms the Storm

23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”

26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

What kind of a man, indeed. Psalm 65 answers this question. He is the Living God, the God of our salvation.

    Linda , thank you for sharing this “finding Jesus” moment! I love how it’s all about Him. God bless you as you keep looking for Him and at Him and help us to as well!


    • Deb, I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t been posting as much, but I realized this morning that a post doesn’t have to be long to point people to Jesus. 🙂 And that’s what it’s all about! Peace, Linda
