“But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, LORD, save me!”
Like Peter, when we step out of the boat to serve the LORD, we may walk on water for a time, but the waves of the world always appear! The storms going on around us should always show us how much we need JESUS!
“In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, For You will answer me.”
We will have days of trouble, where we wake up and ask, how did I get here? How did the waves of bills overcome me? How did the waves of health overtake me? Or, how did the waves of doubt consume me? We all, at, one time or the other have felt like we were sinking or drowning, maybe even today!
“Help me, O LORD my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy.”
Realize we have all said foolish things, made wrong choices and unwise decisions! The wisest thing we can do is look to the LORD, call on His name and know when we call out to Him, “Save me” know His help is on the way! Remember, in the next verses Jesus pulls Peter out of the water, the winds cease and those in the boat worship and rejoice! Today, let us worship and rejoice, knowing we are saved and His mercy endures for ever! Have a blessed day!
