Someone out there, maybe you or a close friend or family member, is caught in a terrible storm right now. Danger is all around. The wind is howling, the waves are crashing, and your little vessel has taken on about all that it can and it feels like at any moment it’s going under. It feels like all hope is lost.
The disciples surely must have felt the same way. They’re out on the sea when a terrible storm hits them. Around 3 a.m. they have just been lost all hope. They’ve been rowing against the waves and wind and seem to be going nowhere. And they’re about to give up. Maybe you’re in the same boat(pun intended). Are you ready to quit? Don’t.
Look what happens. Just as they are ready to quit, they see Jesus. And what’s He doing? Walking on water!! In the middle of their storm, right in the midst of their tragedy and despair, they witness a miracle!!
But please, don’t miss the part that He would have passed by them. Jesus doesn’t force Himself on anyone. Not the disciples that night. Not you or me now. The key is, they saw Him. Have you looked for Him in the middle of your storm? Perhaps you should. Go to church. Pray. Read your Bible. Listen to some praise and worship music. Go talk to a good Christian friend. Whatever, just don’t keep fighting the waves alone, or you’re not gonna make it. Look for Him, and who knows, you just might get to witness a miracle too.
