About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!” But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said, “Take Courage. I am here! –Matthew 14:25-27 (New Living Translation)
When Jesus was coming towards the disciples on the water, the disciples were scared. Who was this man who was coming towards them? Who can actually walk on water anyway?
Jesus Christ came to them and said: Do not be afraid! I am here. Take courage.
This scripture gives us encouragement that Jesus Christ is there with us. Whatever we are going through, we can call out and he will help us. Reading this scripture basically comes down to ‘He WILL NEVER leave my side and he WILL REMAIN beside me every day of my life’. When storms come and when curve balls are thrown at us, he is there to calm it. He is never too far away and attending to someone else.
Don’t let your fears take away the joy God has given you!
In scriptures such as this one, hang it on your wall. Type it out at least 10 times a day so you get it in your heart and mind. The devil kills to destroy. Jesus Christ came to give you peace, joy and freedom.
Apply to your life:
-Know that God can only save you from your fears, nothing else can! Trust Jesus Christ today 🙂
