Keep your eyes OFF the Storm and ON the Lord Jesus Christ
Matthew 14:28-30 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water." 29 So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" (NKJV)
If we concentrate on our problem we will be buried. We can have our ship in the storm but do not want the storm in our ship!
1 Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.(NKJV)
Carnal man desires to please only SELF
Spiritual man desires to please only Jesus, the Father and Holy Spirit
Lord of my heart and soul and life, I offer up praise to You!
When we keep our eyes on Him who calmed the wind and the waves nothing is impossible. He loves us, has a definite purpose and plan for us, today and long term. HE is the God of the impossible, sometimes in spite of us. Can you give Him that opportunity to show you?
He loves you SO much and is reaching out to you even now. He offers forgiveness, freedom, deliverance and practical, everyday encouragement. HE truly is the lover of your soul. How difficult can it be to say yes to the creator of the universe who'd love to have that special, intimate relationship with you?
