But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
Peter got out of the boat and walked on water at the command of the Lord. But when he felt the boisterous winds, he panicked, started sinking and cried, “Lord, save me!” Immediately, the Lord stretched out His hand and saved him.
Let me ask you this: If the winds weren’t boisterous that night, would Peter have been able to walk on water? Of course not! Peter’s feat had nothing to do with how strong the winds or waves were. It had everything to do with Jesus. As long as he fixed His eyes on Jesus, Peter was able to do what he saw the Lord doing.
In the same way, my friend, when the boisterous winds of painful symptoms or bad medical reports clamor for your attention, remember that receiving your healing has nothing to do with how bad they are. It has everything to do with how Christ has already paid the price for your healing and health. It has everything to do with how He is right now, above every disease that can plague your body. So keep your eyes on Jesus and walk in His strength, healing and life!
The same can be said about receiving provision from the Lord. Does it really depend on how well the economy is doing? So why pay attention to the bad reports and get all worried? Keep your eyes on Jesus and step into His abundant supply!
My friend, don’t let the stormy winds and waves of your challenges distract you. They have nothing to do with whether you walk victoriously over your circumstances or not. Just keep your eyes on Jesus—and receive your miracle!
