In the Word

Jesus Walks on the Sea
Date Posted: August 4, 2009
Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone. Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. So when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid. But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid." Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going. John 6:15-21 NKJV

When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the water, they were afraid. The accounts in Matthew and Mark state that the disciples thought they were seeing a ghost. Sometimes, we also see things in our lives that are very scary. We may see an illness, a bankruptcy, or a job loss and be very afraid. But look closer. You may see God doing something miraculous. The situation that looks insurmountable in your strength, may be an opportunity for you to trust God’s strength. Do not be anxious about your situation, but present the scary situations of your life to God and you will discover a peace that is beyond comprehension. (Philippians 4:6,7)
