A Stroll on the Lake

John 6:19,20 They rowed the boat about three or four miles. Then they saw Jesus. He was walking on the water, coming to the boat. They were afraid. But he said to them, “Don’t be afraid. It’s me.”

Whether we like it or not, storms blow in our lives – sometimes when we least expect them, sometimes when we’re at our most vulnerable. And yet Jesus has this habit of being there for us, right there in the middle of the storm.

Imagine this for a moment: You’re out on a lake in a small boat. A huge storm blows in and the boat starts pitching so badly that it looks like sinking and your chances of survival in this stormy sea are slim indeed. You’re in fear of your life.

And while all this is going on, you look out and, incredibly, you see someone out for a stroll – not along the shoreline, no, – out on the lake!! This someone is walking on water. Now that gets the adrenalin pumping at double time.

John 6:19,20 They rowed the boat about three or four miles. Then they saw Jesus. He was walking on the water, coming to the boat. They were afraid. But he said to them, “Don’t be afraid. It’s me.”

But then He gets into your boat and with a single command from His mouth, the storm ceases. Unbelievable!

Now we can argue about whether or not that actually ever happened. I, for one, believe with all my heart that Jesus did walk on that lake and that He did still the storm.

The question is though, does it still happen today? When you’re out in your small boat on this big ocean called life and the storm blows in, does Jesus come out and get into your boat and calm your fears? Maybe that’s more to the point.

I’ve been through some shockers in my life but one day He walked out through the storm and stepped into my boat. Life hasn’t been the same since. Peace. Jesus.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
