KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:19 KJV” So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.”
Jesus disciples were in deep crisis, the winds were harsh and terrible, blowing against them. These were fishermen who were very used to certain adversities of the ocean, yet this particular condition was beyond their experience. To their amazement, they saw somebody walking on the water, towards them. They soon realised it was the Lord. The Lord had seen them in trouble a long time ago , so He was coming to correct the trouble which had risen against them. Consider it, He came in style. The very problem that was tormenting them, was the very thing He was walking over. He demonstrated that, the storm raging at them was under His feet. The lesson we wish to learn out of this is that He is greater than evert problem, and will never leave you under any condition. He would surely be present to answer your prayers.
Let’s consider what the bible said about this issue. Hebrews 13:5 KJV “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” In the original meaning, it gives an emphasis here. It says, ,I will, never leave you, no never, no never. This is a very strong word. It is a sure statement that He would always stand by you. Dear one believe it. Believing is the only means we gain access to stand in God’s world of grace and power. Rom 5:2 KJV “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand…….” No child of God will be any way miserable if all will simply believe in the ever-abiding presence and the readiness of the Lord to deliver His own from all crises.
When the Lord instructed the church about the great commission, he said, lo I am with you always, even to the end of the ages. Matt 28:20b. He fulfilled it in Mark 16:20, where the scripture said,” they went everywhere preaching the gospel, the Lord working with them, confirming the word with signs and wonders following it”. Every child of God must be more than convinced that Jesus is always with them. In this time, we don’t ask Him to be with us, like it happened in the case of the disciples, where they had to be somewhere for Jesus to come. In our case He is ever with us. In actual fact He is our life, and so ,if we are present at any place, then the Lord is also there. Amen.
THOUGHT: STOP ASKING THE LORD TO BE WITH YOU, RATHER THANK HIM FOR BEING WITH YOU ALWAYS.
Matthew 28:20 KJV” Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Isaiah 52:12 KJV ” For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward.”
