Happy Sunday fam!
Today, I will like us to pick a lesson from the book of Matthew chapter 14: 22 -31.
Then Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people away. After sending the people away, he went up a hill by himself to pray. When evening came, Jesus was there alone and by this time the boat was far out in the lake, tossed about by the waves, because the wind was blowing against it. Between three and six o’ clock in the morning, Jesus came to the disciples, walking on the water. When they saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. ‘its a ghost!” they said, and screamed with fear. Jesus spoke to them at once, ‘Courage!’ He said. ‘It is I, don’t be afraid!’ Then Peter spoke up, ‘Lord, if it is really you, order me to come out on the water to you.’ ‘Come!” answered Jesus. So Peter got out of the boat and started walking on the water to Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he was afraid and started to sink down in the water. ‘Save me, Lord!” He cried. At once, Jesus reached out and grabbed hold of him and said ‘How little faith you have! Why did you doubt?’
It was important to type out the passage as above. From this passage, we can see Jesus Christ went to the pray. He went to pray for you, for me, for us! He went to commune with the Father. During the prayer, he noticed the storm. The master is never late. He made His way to them on the sea. When we are in trials and tribulations, the master is never late, He never holidays. He is awake for our sake, to be there at all times because He is the all knowing God!
Oh but how sad is it that we have Peters in us. We want to go out to God on the sea but we often lose faith. DON’T LET FEAR GROW ON YOUR FAITH! We need to know that our storm doesn’t take Jesus by surprise. We need to be rest assured that He has everything under control. In problems and when all seems lost, look up! not down, not sideways, not behind, but UP!
We need to believe that our master is abundantly able to do what you cant do so why not leave it all to Him?
The master is calling on to us, He is asking us what our problems are. Let us let Him in, give them to Him and He will show you how capable He is.
Have a blessed week ahead!
