In The Storm

………THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…….

WHEN THE  DISCIPLES  SAW HIM WALKING ON THE SEA
THEY WERE TROUBLED, SAYING, IT IS A GHOST!   AND
THEY CRIED OUT FOR FEAR.  BUT IMMEDIATELY JESUS
SPOKE TO THEM, SAYING, BE OF GOOD CHEER!  IT IS I;
DO NOT BE AFRAID.  SO HE SAID, COME. AND WHEN
PETER HAD CAME DOWN OUT OF THE BOAT HE WALKED
ON THE WATER TO GO TO JESUS.  BUT HE SAW THAT
THE WIND WAS BOISTEROUS, HE WAS AFRAID; AND
BEGINNING TO SINK HE CRIED OUT SAYING “LORD SAVE
ME.”
(MATTHEW 14:26,27,29 &30 *NKJV)

Peter began to sink because he took his eyes
off of Jesus, and focused on the waves all around him.
This was because his faith faltered.  So what did Peter
do but reach out to Jesus who was the only one that
could save him!  You see Peter forgot to WALK BY FAITH, NOT
BY SIGHT.   (2 CORINTHIANS 5:7)

Now we may not be walking on water, but when our
troubles surround us, if we focus on them instead of
placing our faith in Jesus, we will start to sink as well!

Therefore, when you are facing difficulties and
troubles surround you; keep your eyes on Jesus’ power
rather then on your problems.  Also when you are
apprehensive about your troubles, and if you doubt
Christ’s presence or His great ability to help; remember
that He is the only one that can really help you as well!

Tonight why not read this story. You will find it in
The Book of Matthew, Chapter 14, Verses 22-33, for
wonderful reading it truly is!

Finally, WATCH, STAND FAST IN THE FAITH
BE BRAVE, BE STRONG.  LET ALL YOU DO BE DONE
WITH LOVE.   Amen.   (1 CORINTHIANS 16:13)
