The night was dark. Jesus’ disciples were alone in the middle of a churning sea. A strong wind was blowing. Waves were tossing their boat.
Suddenly, in the midst of the darkness, wind, and waves, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat. They were afraid until Jesus spoke to them—“It is I. Do not be afraid.” Upon hearing these words, the disciples “were willing to take Him into their boat; and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.”
This account from John 6:16-21 in the Bible depicts the condition of human life. Most of us would agree that problems often surround us; problems with work, school, relationships, money, health. Our troubles are like the churning of the sea. But the good news to the disciples that night is good news for us today. Jesus still speaks these words: “It is I. Do not be afraid.”
As you struggle to row against the churning sea of troubles in your life, Jesus is here waiting for you invite Him in. You can receive Him right now by opening your heart and praying this little prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I need You! Thank You for coming as the Savior to this troubled world. Thank You for dying for me. Forgive me of all my sins. Lord Jesus, I believe into You, and I receive You right now. Fill me with peace and be with me on my life’s journey. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Amen.”
