Daily Read – Genesis 44:1-45:28; Matthew 14:13-36; Psalm 18:37-50; Proverbs 4:11-13
And Peter answered Him and said,
"Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat,
he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid;
and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him,
and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
The winds are blowing across this nation and the waters are beginning to churn. Birth pangs plunge the earth into major transition with increased intensity. All things are shifting and shaking.
The storm heads your way, but provision is waiting for you. I am with you in every storm, but there are times when spirits of fear and anxiety blind you from recognizing Me in the midst of turmoil. I never leave you alone nor abandoned for I am always with you.
It is vital to keep your eyes fixed on Me, the author and finisher of your faith. Don’t allow the enemy to shipwreck your faith for it will be a key in this next season.
The wind blows and the waters rise, but in the midst, never allow the enemy to steal your attention from Me to focus on the circumstances in your life. Keep your gaze on Me. Listen and when I tell you to come, do so without hesitation. Move forward by the voice of Holy Spirit and give no place to the voices of doubt and unbelief. They will always keep you from entering into My perfect will in your life.
Enter My boat and let Me take you into this next season. Trust Me and watch your troubled seas come into shalom peace.
You too can walk on the water!
Holy Spirit, I ask for Your help to keep my eyes focused on the face of Christ. When my gaze begins to drift from Him, remind me to refocus. Precious Jesus, I want to recognize You in the midst of the storms. My heart's desire is to keep my eyes on You no matter what comes my way. Thank You for always being near to catch me when I fall. You are a merciful and faithful God. I want to fall back into Your trustworthy arms and rest as You take me through the coming storms. When You give the word and beckon me to come, I will join You as we walk on water together! Amen!
