Peter stepped out onto the water and began to walk toward Jesus. But when he realized how high the waves were, he became frightened and started to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he cried out. Jesus immediately stretched out his hand and lifted him up and said, “What little faith you have! Why would you let doubt win?”
—Matthew 14:29–31 (TPT)
The Bible recounts numerous times when chaotic circumstances threatened to engulf God’s people. Elijah at Mt. Horeb besieged by the wind, the earthquake, and the fire. The Israelites pursued by the Egyptians to the brink of the Red Sea. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace. The disciples tossed around on the Sea of Galilee. Peter, walking across the water toward Jesus as the waves crashed around him.
In all of these tumultuous situations, God orchestrated peace and safety in the midst of intense pressure: the whisper, the dry path through towering walls of water, the “other” in the flames, the calm sea, or the admonition to stay focused on Jesus rather than the waves.
So often we get distracted by the chaos, the commotion, and the clamor of storms raging around us that we forget to “Be still and know that He is God” (Isaiah 46:10). We take our eyes off Him and feel overwhelmed by the dire circumstances we find ourselves in.
Do you need to take a deep breath and lift your eyes from the storm that threatens to immerse you? Read Psalm 121 and lift up your eyes!
