In the midst of a life-threatening storm, the disciples thought that they were going to drown. They couldn’t keep their boat afloat and the boisterous waves kept battering against their boat. They were in the midst of a hopeless situation. And then Jesus appeared, walking on the water. They thought He was a ghost. But then Christ speaks those beautiful words which instantly reassured them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” As He stepped onto the boat, the wind and waves died down and everything was calm again.
Are the storms of life threatening to drown you? Do you feel hopeless? Invite Jesus into your boat. He is the only one who’s able to calm the storm.
