Jesus Calms the Storm

“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves. What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor!
Psalms 107:28‭-‬30 NLT

Not the reference you expected? I was reading Psalm 107 when that section came up and I was immediately reminded of the episode in Luke:

One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and started out. As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!”
Luke 8:22‭-‬25 NLT

The disciples that were learned men must’ve recognized that part of the Psalms as it came to life before them. The answer then would have been obvious to “Who is this man?”—He is God incarnate!
