And so Jesus came to the disciples in the midst of the violent storm, walking on the water. And they were very afraid, but Jesus asked them not to be frightened. Peter was amazed and astonished, asking Jesus if he might walk out to join Jesus on the water. Jesus said to come ahead. Peter was soon walking upon the sea as well.
Suddenly, Peter was overcome with fear as he begin to sink. He took his eyes off of Jesus, calling out in angst. Calming the wind and the sea, Jesus moved to him swiftly, murmuring gently, “Oh, ye of little faith.” The disciples were surely convinced after this miracle and knew that Jesus really was the son of God.
During our own storms and trials when the sea is rough and we are terrified, we may call out to the Lord as well.
He is there always. Like Peter, we reach out and start to move toward Him, or we can sink if we take our eyes off of Jesus. We have to trust in Him and have faith. He will eventually calm every storm of life if we just believe and trust in Him. We can trust in ourselves too because of His love for us. We can weather any difficulty. The key is faith.
