When Peter saw how strong the wind was, he was afraid and started sinking. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.Matthew 14:30
You are not alone.
Peter stepped out of the boat and walked on the water next to Jesus. But after a while, the storm grew stronger and, overwhelmed by a situation he couldn’t control, Peter began to sink.
Immediately, Jesus saves Peter. But then He asks one question:
“O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
When storms in life happen, it’s easy to act like Peter. We can become so fixated on the problems around us that we lose sight of our Savior standing beside us.
But even when hope seems lost, Jesus is near. His constant presence is our confident assurance that during life’s storms, God is, and always will be, in control.
Whatever you’re going through right now, be encouraged: Christ is your anchor, He is able to do the impossible, and He will not let you drown. Hold onto hope by fixing your eyes on Him.
