A message from God's heart for you.

“I know what I’m doing, My daughter. Trust Me. I have a plan and a purpose for your pain. You are known by Me. You are seen. You are not forgotten. You are beautifully and perfectly loved. I know that not everything I do for your good will always feel good at the time it is happening. I know that you are not always going to be happy with Me when I am removing something from your life or adding something to it that you do not understand. I know that your life is not always going to seem like the easiest place for you to exist, and sometimes you are going to wonder where I am. You are going to face moments in your life when you question My presence, My power, and My plan. You are going to wonder if there is purpose for you in the seasons of dryness and pain. I know that you may find yourself wondering if the suffering will ever stop, if the light will ever dawn again. Rest My child. Rest in Me. Rest in the Truth that I know every plan I have for your life. Rest in the Truth that I know what needs to be in your life and what needs to be removed. Rest in Me. Rest in assurance that I always have your best interest at heart. Rest in the Truth that I will never do anything to harm you. Rest in assurance that you are Mine – and because you are Mine – you will always be taken care of. Even in this season of pruning, of stripping, of peeling back the layers – even in this season – I am still good. All things will still work together for your good. You belong to Me, and there is nothing that can change that. Fear not, I am with you. You are My daughter. And that is enough. Trust Me, I am doing a new thing – and one day you will perceive it.”

Lord, I receive your truth! I receive your word of life and of love. You are my God. There is nothing that man can do to me. You are for me, who can possibly rise against you? I am safe in your hands. My life is safe in your hands. My present and my future are safe in your hands. May your kingdom come, your will be done – in my life, as it is in heaven. This I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen

(Read Isaiah 55:8-9; Isaiah 43:19; Jeremiah 29:11, Isaiah 41:10)

    1. Thank you dad for this message i needed this my heart needed this I hear you father thank you loving me not forgetting me and reassuring me in this time. I’m in aw right now beyond thankful. I love u father! Amen amen and amen

    2. Thank you Jesus. I needed that more than anyone could ever know. I’m hurting because something has been removed but I know it’s for my best and I will shout and give testimony when he’s through puning this body. Thank you again because yes was wondering do you see my tears, do you feel my anguish, my anxieties. My lonliness, willing to go back through three hell you delivered me from just to have someone e all the while knowing I’m just a way to a means for him. Thanks for Hope for one more day

      1. Wow!I am going through the exact same thing being removed from a 27year relationship of hellish stuff,I felt all that u named and still do but its been six months and I’m growing stronger and learning to trust God in this season of pruning, pain and perseverance. I decided to walk in my healing not swim in my pain!Because God knows what’s best for me JEANNETTE and He knows what’s best for you.I still cry but I’m know healing and restoration is mine!!!Be encouraged!GOD’S GOT IT!!!Watch! In Jesus Name!!!

        1. Wow, I went through the same thing 18 years ago, what a pruning, loneliness, doubt, pain and hurt. We are not alone, I am so grateful that God rescue me, so I could see clearly that I was allowing another person to destroy my life and the plan he had for me. He was not loving me as Christ love the church and gave his self. I had to realize through the pain that he was not for me and I was not for him. No matter what the cost it will never out way God’s love for us. When I look back if he would not have wanted a divorce, we would have still accepted each others abuse. Thank you Jesus for saving me, and helping me to see truth. The word says, And you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. For whom the SON set free is free indeed. Be blessed ladies, God is on your side. 🙂 John 8:36

  10. Psalm 18
    (personalized prayer for me, Cricket, Crystal Marie.)

    1 I love you, Lord;
    you are my strength.
    2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
    my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
    He is my shield, the power that saves me,
    and my place of safety.
    3 I called on the Lord who is worthy of praise,
    and he saved me from my enemies.

    4 The ropes of death entangled me;
    floods of destruction swept over me.
    5 The grave wrapped its ropes around me;
    death laid a trap in my path.
    6 But in my distress, I cried out to the LORD;
    yes, I prayed to my God for help.
    He heard me from his sanctuary;
    my cry to him reached his ears.

    7 Then the earth quaked and trembled.
    The foundations of the mountains shook;
    they quaked because of his anger.
    8 Smoke poured from his nostrils;
    fierce flames leaped from his mouth.
    Glowing coals blazed forth from him.
    9 He opened the heavens and came down;
    dark storm clouds were beneath his feet.
    10 Mounted on a mighty angelic being, he flew,
    soaring on the wings of the wind.
    11 He shrouded himself in darkness,
    ceiling his approach with dark rain clouds.
    12 Thick clouds shielded the brightness around him
    and rained down hail and burning coals.
    13 The Lord thundered from heaven;
    the voice of the Most High rebounded
    amid the hail and burning coals.
    14 He shot his arrows and scattered his enemies;
    his lightning flashed,
    and they were greatly confused.
    15 Then at your command, O Lord, at the blast of your breath,
    the bottom of the sea could be seen,
    and the foundations of the earth were laid bare.

    16 He reached down from heaven and rescued me;
    he drew me out of deep waters.
    17 He rescued me from my powerful enemies,
    from those who hated me and were too strong for me.
    18 They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress,
    but the Lord supported me.
    19 He led me to a place of safety;
    he rescued me because he delights in me.
    20 The Lord rewarded me for doing right;
    he restored me because of my innocence.
    21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord;
    I have not turned from my God to follow evil.
    22 I have followed all his regulations;
    I [shall never again] abandon his decrees.
    23 I am blameless before God;
    I (Emmanuel, God with me, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit living in me, my Blessed Messiah) have kept myself from sin.
    24 The Lord awarded me for doing right.
    He has seen my innocence.

    25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful;
    to those with integrity you show integrity.
    26 To the pure you show yourself pure,
    but to the wicked you show yourself hostile.
    27 You rescue the humble,
    but you humiliate the proud.
    28 You light a lamp for me.
    The LORD, my God, lights up my darkness.
    29 in you

    1. Amen cricket crystal Marie Lord made stronger this scripture blessed my worried soul this morning I’ve really been going through the fire for just loving Jesus

    2. 29 In your strength I can crush an army;
      with my God I can scale any wall.

      30 God’s way is perfect.
      All the LORD’s promises prove true.
      He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
      31 For who is God except the LORD?
      Who but our God is a solid rock?
      32 God arms me with strength,
      and he makes my way perfect.
      33 He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
      enabling me to me to stand on mountain heights.
      34 He trains my hands for battle;
      he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.
      35 You have given me your shield of victory.
      Your right hand supports me;
      your help has made me great.
      36 You made a wide path for my feet
      to keep them from slipping.

      37 I chased my enemies and caught them;
      I (Emmanuel, God with me, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit living in me, Blessed Messiah) did not stop until they were conquered.
      38 I (Emmanuel, God with me, Jesus Christ, Blessed Messiah) struck them down so they could not get up;
      they fell beneath [our] feet! (Sweet Victory through You, my Beloved Jesus!)
      39 You have armed me with strength for the battle;
      you have subdued my enemies under my feet.
      40 You placed my foot on their necks.
      I have destroyed all who hated me.
      41 They called for help, but no one came to their rescue.
      They even cried to the LORD, but he refused to answer.
      42 I ground them as fine as dust in the wind.
      I swept them into the gutter like dirt.
      43 You gave me, (Cricket,) victory over my accusers.
      You appointed me, (Crystal Marie,) ruler over nations;
      people I don’t even know now serve me.
      44 As soon as they hear of me, they submit;
      foreign nations cringe before me.
      45 They all lose their courage
      and come trembling from their strongholds.

      46 The LORD lives! PRAISE TO MY ROCK!
      May the God of my salvation be exalted!
      47 He is the God who pays back those who harm me;
      (Hallelujah! And you shall do it with the same lovingkindness You have shown me!)
      he subdues the nations under me, (Crystal Marie,)
      48 and rescues me from my enemies.
      You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies;
      you save me, (Your sweet, adorable Cricket, who chirps incessantly unto Your heart from her heart to Yours, which is really Your heart to hers and back to Yours again, day and night) from violent opponents.
      49 For this, O LORD, I, (Cricket, Crystal Marie made stronger IN Jesus) will praise you among the nations;
      I will sing praises to Your name.
      50 You give great victories to (Your little shepherd girl who sings lullabies with and counts sheep into her Lord and Savior, in her heart, soul, body, and FINALLY NOW, IN HER MIND! HALLELUJAH!);
      You show unfailing love to Your anointed,
      to (Crystal Marie, Your highly favored and immeasurably blessed, aboundingly graced and beautifully ordained chosen one, Your prodigal daughter who loves Jesus with a relentlessly crazy love that is upside down in nature, because the Creator of my soul loved me first) and all of my descendants forever.
      -Psalm 18, personalized just for me, Crystal Marie.
      God loves you, Crystal Marie.
      He loves you so much!
      You just think you know how much!
      But you don’t really know!
      You think you know how sovereignly I hold you,
      but you don’t really know, do you, my beloved??
      Ha ha.. a little chuckle of amusement in a moment of bewilderment.
      Do you get it, My sweetness!
      Yes, my adorable little girl who runs and plays with me in the field today.
      I met you here long ago.
      You did not know me to be here with you then.
      You were frightened here long ago.
      But, My beloved, I did not ever, ever, ever let you go.
      I have a great purpose for you, My dear child.
      I am guiding you and protecting you.
      No one can stop this!
      Now YOU know this! Don’t you?
      Let go and let God, we have!
      Jesus, we afflicted, yet, lifting up!
      I love You the absolute, absolute most!
      Oh, Lord of heavenly hosts, You helped me let go!
      I owe You my life, and yet You
      just wanted to remind me of a love unknown!
      You rhymed Your way into a stone, cold heart!
      How did You do it, my Lord?
      You have me in awe of Your love for me!
      Glory to God! Thank You, Jesus!
      You call me unto a beautiful heart that sparks a refining fire that sets me apart, and I shall not be stopped! This call on my life is irrevocable! Watch in wonder, as I do too, with what God is going to do with me!!
      Do you sense the different tone here???
      Watch it, perceive it, breathe it, hone in on it! Hone your senses on the fire in my soul!!!
      It is here!!! The fire living in men is the Holy Spirit that leads and guides me! The One that Jesus left for me! Hallelujah! I am set apart! I am taken apart! I am chosen for this purpose! I shall go and preach the gospel for You, my Lord! Just see me through! That’s all I ask! I am just a willing vessel of weakness! I am only strong because of Who lives in me!!! Hallelujah!!! God ain’t through with me!!! My feet are on fire now, my Lord! I shall just wait for You to set a path for You and I to trail blaze upon!!! Come on!!! This is a revival!!!

Oh, hallelujah, Your grace completes me and releases me to receive wholeness in every feat and on every battlefield! I am complete in King Jesus! I am Your blessed and highly favored daughter of the King, sweet Jesus! I love You forevermore and my soul is and always shall be only Yours! You are my One and Only! God, thank You. These words are nonsensical to give to the best Father that was, is, and ever could be. Thank You anyway though. Take my small words and make them infinitely more than they could ever be!!! Yes! Yes! Yes! You, sweet Jesus, blessed the process. Thank You for helping me to obey the Father in all of my stubborness and prideful weaknesses. You are the best friend I have or will ever have. No one can take Your place in my life! Can I get a witness? I love You, Jesus! In Your Name I pray and stand and declare all Your promises as my own, to be mine, irrevocably, forevermore!

    Please sisterhood stay in prayer for the devil is really upset with the assembly of God’s people yes there is a war going on between good and evil
    The devil never gives up remember (it) does it’s job well with its crew of demons to shift God’s people as. Wheat
    I’m surly praying on this morning some SISTERS will be blessed after reading this LESSON
    February 22nd Friday 2016
    The end is nearthe devil is trying to take as many of soul’s before the bottles pit don’t allow it to live in your body it needs a body to live in you will be confused fighting against one another hurting your love ones ect.
    Screaming and pointing fingers with three pointing back at yourself only wondering Lord Jesus why did I allow the devil to make me so upset with the person who really knows what the devil is really doing it’s ugly and a very difficult time in one’s own life when you know that you know what Jesus wants from you always remember that the devil knows your business like Jesus knows I’m so glad that Jesus is praying on my behalf how about my sisters in Christ
    Matthew 14:22-33
    Purpose: to comfort listeners with the reality of Christ’s intercession and challenge them to find Christ reaching out his hand in the storms of life.

    There are two storms we all must face in life.

    The disciples in the night we see them in our text were literally churning waters. They had been out on the waters and had gotten to the middle of the lake. But out of nowhere a notorious squall blew in against them. They had to pull down the sails and for hours had been rowing to keep their boat from being swamped. Perhaps they were fearing for their lives. Certainly they would have felt depressed in their futile efforts to get across the lake.

    And as Matthew records this event for the early church in Northern Judea, I’m sure there were many times those early Jewish Christians felt just like those disciples that night. Sometimes persecuted, often toiling away at the work of Christ’s Church, but feeling alone. Feeling like those disciples on the oars: “We’re getting nowhere.”
    Maybe you’re a (SISTER) facing problems a frustrating. Or maybe you lost your job and felt you could manage;take me for instance i hade three doctors to disable me pushing so hard to keep my mobility and I have to keep my mind focus totally on the Lord people judging me mocked me laugh, they knew my pain they knew my story yes I’m still fighting for my life after months you’re overwhelmed and depressed. I’m sure you’ve been in such a storm. If not right now, certainly we’ll all face family problems, a love one getting ill over night now your whole life change you have to make decisions maybe you have to take care of your love one with so much love I should say death and grief, an accident or illness. Such storms can blow in as unannounced visitors at any moment. The daily struggles are the first set of storms.

    2.) But the second set of storms we face on the sea of life are the storms of doubt! We’re tempted to think God doesn’t care. He must be unaware. If He does know about my storms, He’s distant and cold, and not here! In the storms of doubt we often just accept the drudgery and despair. And we fail to look up!

    But picture what Matthew recorded. There is a solitary figure 1200 feet up above the storms. He’s kneeling their on the hills of Sea of Galilee. And just like God’s eye is even on the smallest sparrow, so too Jesus the Saviour of the world has his watchful eye on that storm tossed boat. That doesn’t come as much comfort, yet when we realize that it was Jesus that sent them out into the storm in the first place, does that help?

    Our text begins with Jesus dismissing huge a crowd of at least 15,000 people. He had been teaching them all day, right up until the end of the day. Now they’re hungry. The disciples say, “Send them away!” But Jesus says, “I’ll show them that I am the Saviour of the world, the living God, who fed the children of Israel manna, bread from heaven, in the desert in Old Testament.”

    So Jesus did it! He broke the bread, and we know it was a miracle. It is just good to feed poor hungry people! That is a wonderful part of what Christ’s kingdom is about in this hungry world. We all ought to have a part in that action.

    But there is more here! Jesus was making a sign, a blinking neon light to the Jews: Hello, this is what God did in the Old Testament and Jesus is doing it here again!! Even more, Jesus is saying for the whole world, “I am the bread that comes down from heaven. The same way you need daily bread as the staple you live on, so I am the spiritual bread every person needs for life with God. All you need for life, protection, for love, for purpose you will find it all in me – I am God, I am your Bread of Life! (John 6)But the people don’t care about that. They see the miracle and think this guy could make us rich. This guy could drive out the Romans. Look, he has got us men seated in groups of fifties like an army. He’ll make life easy for us. Let’s make him king and march into Jerusalem!

    And that is where our story begins. Jesus says, “That’s not what I’ve come to do! It’s not what my kingdom is all about. You crowds, go away! You disciples, go over to the other side of the sea and I’ll meet you there to teach you more. Yes, the Saviour of the world commands his disciples to go out on Lake Galilee that evening. He has a plan that the disciples know nothing about! But pretty soon they will likely be wondering, “Why did he send us out onto this lake with such wind?”

    But Jesus sees the wind too. After a few hours, say 9 pm, they’ve made it about half way across the lake. Hours of straining on the oars and now they point the boat into the waves to avoid death! And Jesus, who could have come to their rescue, right away doesn’t come! In fact, it’s not until 3am that Jesus miraculously comes over the waves to save them! Why didn’t He come sooner?

    Don’t you feel that way in your life too? In the hardest times of our lives, in the greatest struggles, it often seems we’re all alone! We feel God has abandoned us. We’re tempted to give in to despair in our personal lives. And we give in to drudgery in our church life. Giving up on God, we’re tempted just to live for small pleasures, without God at our side! We give up on God’s purposes. Our tank is empty of any love to accomplish God’s work.

    Sometimes, we can even feel that if there is any supernatural involvement in what we’re going through, it must be a hostile power. Like those wearied disciples we’re unsure of the spiritual realm. They thought Christ coming to them was a ghost, some powers of darkness. And we may feel that God’s work in the storms of our lives is only as an angry God getting back at us!

    But Matthew wants the early Christians for whom he wrote this gospel to picture the disciples coming to the end of their rope. And where is Jesus? More importantly, what is he doing? He’s above the storm praying for them with all wisdom and all powerful love!

    Do you ever think of that great work of Jesus praying for you in your life? Have you ever had a vision of Jesus as your Great Intercessor?

    Dear sisters , in the first place, our text teaches us to find Jesus above your storms – praying for you!

    It’s wonderful to know you have a friend praying for you when you go through a hard time. But imagine if every time you face a storm, you could know Jesus, the Saviour of the world, is praying for you in that storm. Imagine he’s working things out with God the Father for you to get through the troubles! It’d be like you’re in legal trouble with some town officials. You find, out of the blue, that one of your neighbours, an expert lawyer, has voluntarily gone to work fixing the bind you’re in with the authorities! That’s what Christians believe Jesus role in the universe is. He is the only Mediator between God and man! Matthew is saying that you may be in the storm but, rest assured, Jesus is the Mediator of world. Know he is working out all of our troubles and tests, in prayer with the heavenly Father!

    See, just like in the miracle of bread from heaven in the feeding of the 5000, so too here Jesus is making an Old Testament picture to show to us that He is God working in our lives! Do you remember in Exodus, after God’s people are freed from Egypt, how they had to travel through the desert? Remember in that time of testing in the desert, the Amalekites attack them? A battle breaks out. Moses the Old Testament leader and mediator must go on the hilltop. While he is praying with arms uplifted, the Israelites were winning the battle. When his arms drooped, they were losing. Jesus is saying, “I am the one who is praying for you on the mountain but, unlike Moses, my arms never get tired! My prayers will always be answered for you!”

    That’s the great work of Jesus after the cross, after dying for your sins, and rising again, He went into heaven, presented the perfect sacrifice that makes you right with God. If you’ve trusted in His work, then now you can know that He ever lives to make intercession for you! Hebrews 7 reminds us, “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.” Hebrews 7:25

    Intercessory prayer is Jesus’ job in this stormy time of our world’s life. He’s comes to the Father on your behalf and mine and says, “Look at these guys in the storm-tossed boat. I made them right with you and now they’re struggling and I know their struggles inside out. Now, I pray Father, make it good for them, give them strength to get through the way you want them to. Turn the evil to good for them. Save them completely!” That’s the position Jesus is in as the God-man who came to earth to know our struggles completely and then returned to heaven as our intercessor. Yes, now Jesus is still praying on our behalf

    Our Lord Jesus perfectly understands your struggle and cares deeply for you in your storm. But He also perfectly understands God’s will – praying for that to be activated in your storm! Don’t you love Jesus for this? He understands you completely and is praying that God will achieve His purpose for the trials and deliver you through them. Listen to Jesus pray for the Apostle Peter in a later stormy trial he’d face! “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:31-32).He prays in John 17 for all his disciples: “Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name,” which is a way of saying, “keep them safe in this world of trouble, but protect them from the evil one. Transform them by your truth. Give them your glory!” And if you’re wondering whether Jesus prays for you still today, he does. Listen to another verse from Jesus’ own prayer in John 17: “My prayer is not for them (the disciples) alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message (that includes us), that all of them may be one.” (John 17:20-21)

    So the disciples are at the end of their rope, straining at the oars, in the middle of the darkness. Jesus often lets us get to that point so we’ll turn and look up to him in faith and trust! Are you praying to him in the storms of your life? The disciples couldn’t look above the gloom of their situation. We, however, know Jesus rose from the dead and is seated above all our storms. We know he has been given all power and authority to work salvation in your life and mine. So we can and we need to look up to him in our storms!

    The heart of the gospel is even better than this truth that Jesus is now interceding for us. The disciples didn’t look to Jesus. They failed the test. But still Jesus comes down to them. It’s like a little child running to her mother’s room in a thunder storm. She says, “Sure, mom, I know God is with me. But, Mom, I want a God-with-skin-on!” And that’s what Jesus is. He says, “I won’t leave you orphans, I’ll come to you!”

    So, in the second place, our text teaches us to find Jesus in the storms of doubt: speaking God’s Words of promise.

    The disciples weren’t sure yet that Jesus was the Son of God, ready and willing to work in their lives! In fact, in the gospel of Mark we read after they got in the boat and the winds died down, “they were completely amazed, for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened.” (Mark 6:51-52). Ever feel like that? You just don’t get God. You put him on hold in your life, and harden your heart to him. We think to ourselves, “Jesus, alive, sending His Spirit and Word to lead and guide and empower me today? Nah, I’d rather just go through the motions, I’ll keep my head down in the sorrow, I’ll walk alone!”

    And that is the point of the miracle of Jesus walking on the water. Sure, there’s an awesome, gravity-defying miracle that proves Jesus is God. Sure, there’s fulfillment of Old Testament prophesy; God says, “I AM he who treads on waves.” But what’s the big deal in this miracle? Jesus doesn’t stop the storm! No, he does not stop the storm. But he comes to be with his disciples in the middle of it! He walks on the storm and says to us in the middle of it all: “Take courage. It is I.Don’t be afraid!” That “It is I” is literally Ego eimi, in the Greek, which is I AM, the covenant name of God, Jehovah or Jahweh. Jesus is saying: “I am the presence of the living God with you, so take courage for life; don’t be afraid! – Cheer Up!”Of course, he’s not saying that in a flippant way, but cheer up because I am the living God coming to you personally! (. Ps 91)

    This is the gospel. Jesus came into the middle of our mess to proclaim that He’s with us. Jesus comes in the middle of our storms of sin, suffering, brokenness, depression, darkness and says, “Load it on me. I’ll take it to the cross. Your sins are forgiven. I’ve secured God’s favour for you. I’ll rise again and you with me! Come and by my Spirit I’ll give you the power to walk over these storms!”

    And it’s interesting that just the form of Jesus, his physical presence, couldn’t deliver them. But when they hear his voice, that’s the ahamoment that brings deliverance! Jesus only becomes the Deliverer, when he speaks his Word, and the disciples recognize him! If you have religion, but don’t yet have Christ, you need this  moment: Jesus speaking words of promise into your life, your storms, your drudgery!You who are new to this God-stuff, maybe open to spirituality, you need this ahamoment – a flash of recognition that, by his promises to you, Jesus has come to you in the power of his Spirit. You who are new Christians and you who have been Christians from as early as you can remember, we all need this aha moment in Jesus’ words of promise. We need to hear in his promises that God is saying: “It’s Me. I am in your life, I’ll save!”

    What about you today? Which promise do you need to hear? Are you in trouble? Do you need peace? Are you facing death or depressed? Do you need to know your sin is forgiven? Need to know your tears register and that they’ll be turned to laughter? Dig up the promises of God. They are all fulfilled in Jesus! Isaiah said it so beautifully: “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you.'” (Isaiah 41:13)

    We need to be like Peter saying, “Yes, Lord Jesus, I’ll join you, I’ll walk through the storm on the waves, through the trials with you, Jesus! I’ll go through the valley of the shadow of death, believing you’ll show up. I’ll do as you command. I’ll keep serving in your kingdom and strain on the oars in this your church. I will walk with you, Jesus my Saviour, through and over all this! Your promises ring true in my storms, my darkness, and the drudgery of my life.”

    Sure we, like Peter, see the waves. I think we can excuse his wavering, and the sinking. But Peter does the right thing in that storm of doubt. He cries out: “Lord, save me.” And look at Jesus’ response. Even our little faltering faith is enough: “Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.” (Matthew 14:31).

    This story isn’t a moral like “Be bold like Peter” or “Don’t be rash like Peter.” It’s about Jesus and his way with all who will recognize him as Saviour. All who will take hold of his promises!

    Are you turning to him, trusting him when the chips are down? This Jesus is too wise to make a mistake in the trials and tests he brings us through. He’s ordained them to draw us to him, to purify our faith! And he’s too loving to ever withdraw his hand from any who come to him in faith!

    So Jesus says, “You of little faith…” And if we’re honest, we know that’s all of us! But then he puts his finger on the only question that remains: “why did you doubt?” (Matthew 14:31). Jesus’ rebuke isn’t about Peter sinking in the waves. We’ll all do that from time to time. Jesus knows our feeble frame and He is a compassionate Saviour. He’s not expecting perfect faith from us! No. Jesus is rebuking the disciples for what Peter voiced when he first came: “Lord, if it’s you…”

    Right now from heaven, Jesus is here by the Holy Spirit in your life, in your storms, and he is speaking his gospel promises to you with outstretched hand. He’s saying, “Don’t doubt me as One who is praying for you! Look up to me and claim my words of promise, and you will experience me as God who meets you in the storms of life!” And full of faith we’ll do as the disciples did: “Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.'” (Matthew 14:33)

  27. On february 18th 2016 at 3:15pm my father passed away. I couldnt sleep, couldnt eat. I couldnt understand why God let this happen to me and my family. Weve served God for so long, worked hard in the ministry, and then one day… just like that, my dad was gone. That night me and my family slept around my mother to comfort her, around 3am the next day we heard a sobbing cry, and again, our hearts were torn, at her pain of losing my dad. Around 4am, i get a notification from DOTK and it was this very message that was given. This exact word comforts me in so ways. I not only ready the daily word from you guys but i read this too everyday. I just want to thank you. So much. Thank God for you. Love you dad, God knows we cant wait to see you again in thw Kingdom.
