Life can be really tough right and what makes it worse is when we focus all our energy and attention on
the problems we are facing. We worry, stress out, fear, panic and fret as we dwell upon all the problems
we face but there is a better way.
I was stressing out this week. Things were not going well and I was panicking and anxious but I remembered
In faith, Peter stepped out of the boat and walked on water but as he was approaching the
Lord the word says he began to be aware of his surroundings (the enormous waves and the wind)
and became frightened and began to sink. (read Matthew 14:27-30)
“Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and caught and held him, saying to him,
O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
Matthew 14: 27-31
As long as Peter set his gaze upon the Lord he walked on water but when he took his eyes off the
Lord and focused on what was happening around him he began to sink and I know that’s what
was happening to me. But the Lord wants me to keep my eyes on Him in the midst of the trouble that
comes my way.
What are you focused on today?
Are you focused on your problems more than the Lord?
Consider Psalm 91:14, 15:
“Because he has focused his love on Me, I will deliver him. I will protect him because he knows
my name. When he calls out to me, I will answer him. I will be with him in his distress. I will
deliver him, and I will honor him.”
The enemy would like us to get our minds off Christ. he doesn’t want us being victorious. he loves
it when we are in bondage, in fear, anxious and stressed.
But the Lord wants us to be free. He wants us to receive the answers and solutions we need to
the problems we are facing.
Let’s stop focusing on the waves. Let us focus on the Lord no matter how terrifying the storm is.
He is bigger than any storm we will ever face and that is why He wants us to focus on Him!
Bless you, friends…
