Trouble. Storms. Tests. Trials. We all face them at some point in our lives. The disciples were in a boat during the middle of the night. A storm had them fearful, beaten, tossed, and the wind was against them. Ever feel like that? Ever feel beaten up with everything against you? Keep reading…
Matthew 14:25-27 (AMP)
And in the fourth watch between 3:00–6:00 a.m. of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.  And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright.  But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid!
I love the WORDS of Jesus when He says, “Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid!” You see, it makes no difference to Jesus whether or not it’s stormy. When HE is on the scene, everything is going to be OK. But….realize this. Verse 25 says, “Jesus CAME TO THEM” and verse 26 says, “And when the disciples SAW HIM.” Jesus is ALWAYS coming to us…we just have to make sure we SEE HIM!
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you see Jesus in the midst of your situation. And when you see Him, take courage and don’t be afraid because….HE IS!
