I often sing a verse of a song that reads: Have you any rivers that you think are un-crossable? Have you any mountains that you can’t tunnel through? God Specializes in things thought impossible. And He can do, what no other power can do….
In Matthew 14: 22-33 we read the amazing and miraculous story of Jesus walking on the water to come to the aid and rescue his disciples.
Jesus had earlier instructed His disciples to get into the boat and to cross over to the other side of the sea. Then he left them that night to go up into the mountains alone to pray.
Now the disciples had sailed about 4 to 5 miles across the Sea of Tiberias, which is no more than 10 miles wide, so that they were literally in the very midst of the sea. Suddenly the circumstances severely changed and these expert fishermen became overwhelmed with fear and panic from the impending danger.
In verses 24 & 25 we read, “But the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.”
As they aimlessly struggled to save themselves and keep their boat from sinking, Jesus went walking on the sea directly to them. He not only knew where they were the whole time, but despite the darkness and the lack of visibly from the stormy conditions, they never got out of His divine sight.
He revealed His unlimited power and authority over the laws of gravitation by walking upon the sea; as on dry land. And though the sea was raging from the cold blowing winds in the darkness of night, because of the utmost danger surrounding the disciples that He loved, He came to their rescue.
There’s no storm that might arise in your life that Christ cannot subdue or appear in. He will do whatever is necessary to demonstrate His saving and delivering power, His love and His wonderful grace in your life and circumstances.
Your every passage may not be peaceful and lovely, but He will always be with you through the storms in your life and bring you to a calm landing.
When we walk in obedience and faith we are in the safest place in the universe, for He has promised that He would never leave us nor forsake us. So, Have Faith In God!
