Walking on Water


6:45 Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dispersed the crowd. 6:46 After saying good-bye to them, he went to the mountain to pray. 6:47 When evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea and he was alone on the land. 6:48 He saw them straining at the oars, because the wind was against them. As the night was ending, he came to them walking on the sea, for he wanted to pass by them. 6:49 When they saw him walking on the water they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, 6:50 for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them: “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”

Notice: (1) Trouble doesn’t mean God has abandoned you. The disciples learned that Jesus may be out of sight, but He’s never out of touch. To “walk by faith, not by sight” (2Co 5:7 NKJV) means you’ll sometimes walk in darkness without visible cues. Someone put it this way: “When you can’t trace His hand, you can trust His heart.” When the disciples were being tossed like a cork on the waves, Jesus was up on a mountain praying for them! He was aware of the problem and He was working on the solution. He was their mediator and their need-meeter, just as He has one hand on your need and the other on your answer. “He always lives to intercede for [you]” (Heb 7:25 NIV). Can you imagine Jesus praying to the Father for His fear-filled disciples? And can you imagine the Father refusing to answer His prayers? Never! “The Spirit himself intercedes for us” (Ro 8:26 NIV). With both Jesus and the Holy Spirit talking to the Father on your behalf, your victory is guaranteed. (2) Between the command to “Go” and your safe arrival on the other side, there’s often a crisis. Jesus commanded them to cross to the other shore, but before the trip was completed their world experienced upheaval. What’s buffeting your life today—loss, guilt, loneliness, financial reversal, illness, addiction, rejection? When our faith is low and our fear high, we cry, “If only I had (or hadn’t)…If only I could…” Learn to trust God. It’s not over until He says so. And He hasn’t
