The blowing wind!
“A strong wind was blowing, and the sea grew agitated.” John 6:18
Among the natural forces of life, that science has taken time to study and utilize in providing a better experience for people in different locations of the world is the wind. A blowing wind has the power to birth different effects depending on frequency. While Jesus walked the earth, He was found to be indifferent situations of life like many of us, so that He can have the real experience human faces when they are in such a dilemma.
Among the situations was the different moment on the sea and rivers with severe winds blowing and beating hard against His ship. In one of those times, He was found sleeping, and His disciples had to come and wake Him up. In another time, His disciples were alone in the ship and were facing the effect of a strong wind blowing against their boat, and it was like the boat will turn over, while Jesus was found walking on the stormy sea and coming to the disciples (Matthew 14:25-31).
This scenario showed us that there is no stormy wind that Jesus cannot walk through, either on the land or on the sea. Jesus didn’t just walk on the sea, but He also invited Peter to join Him when requested. While Peter was walking, he saw the wind blows over and arose the sea, and He lost his focus on Jesus, who stood in front of him.
Likewise, the blowing wind over the sea wants to sink us, and we should not give such a space. This is because Jesus, who invited us to the walk after Him, is always there before us, and He is ready to keep us from falling. Stop looking at the blowing winds nor the rising sea, but instead look to the great deliverer whose name JESUS because He reigns overall.
Hebrews 12:2 says, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author, and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
1. Thank you, Jesus, because you are the one who has given me the strength to stand up against the storm.
2. Lord, I look unto you today more than ever in any situation I find myself.
