What is Jesus saying personally to me today – Lord save me
In the middle of a storm, the dark of night, a howling wind and a heavy sea, Jesus believed in Peter. While Peter had his eyes and heart fixed on Jesus he was able to do as Jesus did and walk on water. As soon as he became distracted, he became vulnerable to the elements. There is nothing elemental or spiritual that can take us away from Jesus, it is when we veer away from him that we become vulnerable, the awesome thing is though, He will rescue us if we call upon his name.
Thank you for Speaking to me Jesus
How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?
It only takes a split second to be distracted and take my eyes off Jesus then it inevitably goes wrong and I start to sink in to the waters of sin, doubt and fear. Jesus thinks that I can walk on water, that, he understands that sometimes I may sink in to the water but he will always be there to save me if I call on his name. At a time when I am in a storm I am trying desperately to keep my eyes on Jesus and He has been carrying me, protecting and supporting me, so I don’t know why I stop and get distracted. I cant work this out and all I have today is to cry out as Peter did and ask the Lord to save me.
Lord save me.
Though your grace may I keep my eyes and heart fixed on you.
Jesus walks on the water
Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side while he would send the crowds away. After sending the crowds away he went up into the hills by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, while the boat, by now far out on the lake, was battling with a heavy sea, for there was a head-wind. In the fourth watch of the night he went towards them, walking on the lake, and when the disciples saw him walking on the lake they were terrified. ‘It is a ghost’ they said, and cried out in fear. But at once Jesus called out to them, saying, ‘Courage! It is I! Do not be afraid.’ It was Peter who answered. ‘Lord,’ he said ‘if it is you, tell me to come to you across the water.’ ‘Come’ said Jesus. Then Peter got out of the boat and started walking towards Jesus across the water, but as soon as he felt the force of the wind, he took fright and began to sink. ‘Lord! Save me!’ he cried. Jesus put out his hand at once and held him. ‘Man of little faith,’ he said ‘why did you doubt?’ And as they got into the boat the wind dropped. The men in the boat bowed down before him and said, ‘Truly, you are the Son of God.’
Having made the crossing, they came to land at Gennesaret. When the local people recognised him they spread the news through the whole neighbourhood and took all that were sick to him, begging him just to let them touch the fringe of his cloak. And all those who touched it were completely cured.
