Look Through The Storm

22 Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”

28 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” 29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” ~ Matthew 14:22-33

Sometimes things aren’t always what they seem. Jesus was walking out to the disciples, but they didn’t see Jesus, fear overcame them,  and they saw a ghost. That’s how we are sometimes. We expect our salvation, breakthrough, or deliverance to come in a perfect little box tied with a bow that’s on our front porch, but sometimes to get to our salvation, breakthrough, or deliverance, we have to set out on our own and go through a storm. When we think we’re about to sink, that’s when it shows up, but it won’t come shouting, “I’m your salvation.” or “I’m your breakthrough.” or “I’m your deliverance.” It’s going to come walking on the water, but fear will try to manipulate the way you see it. Fear will make you see your end, instead of your new beginning.

You have to listen out for the voice of The LORD, and then walk out to Him. Walk out in faith and boldness. Be confident that Jesus is with you. Be confident that The LORD is for you and not against you. Be strong and courageous. Don’t allow fear to mask your breakthrough. Listen through the storm and Holy Spirit will guide you to your breakthrough. Don’t allow fear to overwhelm you.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Look Through The Storm.
