God changes perspective through the storms

This week I want to start off with some verses, Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.  Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.  But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”  “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”   “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”  Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”  And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”  When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret.. Matthew 14:22‭-‬36 Have you ever been walking with someone and without thinking about it, you are in step with that person. In this passage as long as Peter kept his eyes on Jesus he would be able to walk on the water, just like Jesus was doing. In today’s world it is so easy to take our eyes off of Jesus and focus on the storm, whether the storm be Covid 19 or the protest and riots or something else going on in your life. But when we focus on Jesus, then you can see what He is doing throughout the storm and maybe during a storm He is holding you in His hand. But maybe during a storm He will give you a new perspective on how He wants you to know Him and what He wants you to do. So during this storm let’s get in God’s word so we can know what He wants us to do. During this storm lets see what He wants us to learn.  So this week let’s commune with God and see what He wants to do through this time in your life.
