Have you ever woken up to the unexpected chaos of life’s storms? I certainly have, and let me tell you, it can feel like a giant wave crashing over your mind, with the wind howling in your ears. It’s like paralyzing fear has come knocking at the door of your heart. But what if I told you there’s a way to weather these storms?
Something incredible happened to me recently during my prayer time. Jesus extended an invitation that changed everything: “Come walk with Me on the water.” This phrase triggered memories of past storms when He gave me the same invitation.
Each time, I learned that my focus should be on Him, not the turbulent circumstances. And now, even amid my current storm, I know I need to keep my eyes on Him. It’s not easy, but with Jesus by my side, I have faith that I can walk on water, no matter how stormy the sea may be.
Fear vs Faith
Life’s storms can be terrifying. Like being lost in the middle of a raging sea, where the waves are crashing against you, you’re left with two options: let fear take over and sink or keep your eyes on Jesus and walk on water, untouched by the storm.
I’ve been there, too, and let me tell you, it’s not easy. I faced some challenging situations, and instead of relying on Jesus, I pulled away from Him in distrust. It wasn’t because He was untrustworthy, but because I had been hurt by people who claimed to love me. I believed I could handle everything independently, but I was wrong.
I made some mistakes, and I almost sank. But as I grew and matured, I realized that walking through a storm alone is the worst possible scenario. We need the Holy Spirit to guide us and Jesus as our refuge. Trusting in them produces a supernatural, life-giving experience that can’t be compared to anything else.
So, if you are in a storm, don’t let fear take over. Keep your eyes on Jesus and let him guide you through it. You’ll be amazed at how strong and resilient you can be!
