…………………….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
( MATTHEW 14:26,27,29 & 30 *NKJV )
Now 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!
So, 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!
Now 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 )
