Luke 8:24  -  And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!"  Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water.  And they ceased, and there was a calm.   


And - then
they - the disciples
came to 
Him -Jesus
awoke - it doesn't say the method they used, maybe shaking?  I don't know, but they were probably shouting the the following statements ...
Him, - Jesus
  • a person with the ability or power to use, control, or dispose of something
  • owner of a slave, animal, etc.
  • employer of workers or servants
  • male head of household
  • a person eminently skilled in something as an occupation, art, science
  • a person whose teachings others accept or follow
  • a worker qualified to teach apprentices and carry on a trade independently
  • the Master, Jesus Christ (actual definition found in the dictionary)
Master, - they repeated this name, not Jesus, but Master...
we - disciples and Jesus, everyone on the boat
  • causing destruction, ruin, extreme discomfort or death
  • to die or be destroyed through violence, privation, etc.

They went to Him, Jesus.
They called Him "Master" - twice!
They believed they were perishing - being destroyed
The wind was powerful.
The waves were raging.
Jesus got up when came to Him panicked.
Jesus rebuked - sternly reprimanded/commanded - the wind
The wind stopped.
The waves stopped crashing.
The surroundings were tranquil.


Remember where to go when in need.
Remember where to go when panicked.
Remember, when in the storm, I am not alone.
Remember His name is also Master - He is qualified to work in any of my situations.

Jesus, sometimes I forget I am not alone.  Sometimes I forget to call Your name in the middle of a storm.  Sometimes I get caught up in the crashing waves or the sound of the winds overwhelm me and forget that I can still listen to the Voice whom brings calm.  You are with me in storms and in times of tranquility.  I am not alone.  Forgive me for my short-term memory.  Thank You for loving me.
