But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me." Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" Matthew 14:30-31
There will be days when doubt will creep in the soul of our well-being. We will forget to pray and allow ourselves to be held by the power of God’s mighty LOVE. Fear will try to rob our faith and we’ll need to be reminded to TRUST.
Jesus performed many miracles. Peter walked on the water. But when he began to sink, he called for Jesus to help. His faith was weakened and he was afraid. When we’re afraid, God longs for us to believe MORE, so we will suffer LESS.
When we find ourselves sinking, Christ pulls us from the waves of worry and draws us closer to Him. When we’re ready to be rescued, He cradles us in strength. He hears our cries for mercy and carries us safely to the shore.
God’s never far away in time of need. Storms will arrive and He will strengthen us! He will guide and provide for our days. If prayerfully seek Him with all of our hearts, He will remove our doubt and help us understand WHY we need to be rescued. He will help us not forget who is with us in the storms.
Dear God, Thank you for Your everlasting love. Thank you for humbling us when we need to be reminded to put our HOPE in You. Teach us to trust in the power of Your will and increase the LOVE of our faithfulness. We will extend our arms to Jesus when He reaches out to us. We will HOLD ON TIGHT, as we're led to the shelter of Your amazing grace. Thank you for mercy, Lord! Help us remain faithful to YOU. Amen
