“Yes, come,” Jesus said.” (Matthew 14:28-29, NLT)
My son is about to step out of his boat of life. I know that the winds will not come only once but a life of duty for Christ will continue to weather many storms. However, I also know that not all storms are there to batter our boats of lives. Some in that scary appearances are there to expose what’s weak, to deal with them, to be able to surrender them all to Jesus as we step out of our comfort zones in order for us to serve the Master. Sometimes, in the process of sinking, one is being cleansed by the Living Water. Truly, in our weaknesses Jesus is our strength. He alone is the source of true Power. He hears our prayers no matter how strong the winds are or how bad the waves are crushing against the boat of life. He is always faithful. He doesn’t let us sink under the water when we have faith. When we trust…
In stormy events of life, Jesus is quick to reach out to save anyone who calls on Him.
The question is... "Are you willing to reach out to His hold and be saved?" Trust. Believe.
Lord, thank You for everything. For saving not only my son but also my husband and I. Thank You that You have provided all the means in order for him to continue to serve You with the talent You had given him. Lord, increase his faith as he steps out and use him as Your instrument for Your glory. May many people who will come his way be able to see Your light that he reflects. Protect him and guide him and give him discernment. Increase his faith at times of gusty winds and may he keep in his heart that You will never leave him nor forsake him. Thank You Lord for Who You are. Thank You for Your love and mercy. Lord, please bless those who are afflicted with severe storms. May they be able to see You in the waters and be able to trust and believe in You. You alone are our Savior. To those who are doubting, make their unbelief to belief. To those who are in confusion, give them order. To those who don't have faith, make their hearts see. To those who are afraid, give them courage. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
