August Devotional

From the Pastor's Desk,

From the Gospel of Matthew 14: 22-33. "Peter Walks on The Water".

Peter knows it is no ghost, that it is the Lord Jesus who is coming across the water towards their boat. It was Peter's total confidence in Jesus that allowed him to get out of the boat and walk on the water. But fear overtook his faith, he took his eyes from Jesus, then he began to sink. He cried out, "Lord save me." We are told, (V:31) that "immediately" Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, no hesitation the response from Jesus was swifter than the blink of an eye.

We all have had "those" days. So did the biblical heroes, Jeremiah, when all his fears materialized at the destruction of Jerusalem. Jacob, when he had learned that his son had been mauled to death by a wild animal. And Jehoshaphat when he learned that a massive army was coming against his kingdom. Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord. Calling together his people whom he led in prayer saying. "Our, God, we have no power against this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you." (V:12 NIV)

Look to Jesus in our times of trouble, He has His hand outstretched to grasp yours, just as He did for Peter.

Pastor, Dan
