"My help cometh from the Lord who made heaven and earth" (Ps. 121:2)
Hello good friends,
In difficult times it's good to know that our Lord is in the distress with us, but the distress is
not in our Lord. He is far above it all, but is involved with it at the same time.
Jesus is infinitely greater than the elements of life. He's even greater than what the media constantly tells you, shocker :).
When Jesus told Peter he could walk on water, he in fact did so (Matt. 14:29). As long as Peter kept his faith focus on the Lord and off the water, he was fine. When Peter moved his attention to the waves and wind, he sank.
Were the waves real? Yes, but Jesus was real too, and He was right there with Peter. Even so
it is with us in the storms of life. And, Peter did not go under, he went over.
Listen to the news less and to Him more, my friend. They are not in charge, the Lord is:
"All power in heaven and in earth is given unto Me" (Jesus speaking, Mt. 28:18).
Faith and peace,
From me to you...July 020
