Matthew 14: 23-33
Jesus followers had little faith when they went out to sea, as the sea tossed and turned their boat they were afraid. They saw Jesus walk towards them on the water and they cried out to Him. Peter walked towards Jesus on the water but because he was afraid, he started sinking. When he was sinking shouted for help from Jesus. Jesus strected out His arms and caught him, and said to him "You have so little faith, Why did you doubt me?”.
When Jesus boarded the ship the sea and the strong wind calmed down and stopped.
The sea and the strong winds are the obstacles I am faced with in life. The boat is me and my heart.
When I am faced with hard situations and problem in life, and no matter how tough and strong they may be, I must not be afraid but Cry out to the Lord and ask for help. I should never doubt what He can do in my life, but put all my faith in Him and he will stretch out His arms and calm the storms in my life. When Jesus comes on board everything is calm.....
Father God, Thank you so much for this scripture and thank you for showing me the importance of keeping my faith in you. Thankyou for showing me that without you in my life the storms will rise and I may not find a way out it. Father I thank you for your love and care and looking out for us in times where we are in the midst of a battle, where we so weak and can not get through it without your help and the presence of the Holy spirit there with us. Lord I pray for everyone out there who are facing big storms in their lives. I pray Lord that they will reach out and cry for your help Lord, and that you will calm the storms in their lives. I pray that they will always keep their faith in you and know that you are the true God who created the heavens and the earth, and you are the almighty God that makes the impossible things in life possible. I Pray for guidance, and more faith for myself and for those out there who are going through tough times. I ask all this in the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.!
