When it was evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea, embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum. It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” They wanted to take him into the boat, but the boat immediately arrived at the shore to which they were heading.
Do not be afraid – Jesus said this many times. He wants us to know that when He is with us, we have nothing to be afraid of. Have you invited Him into everything you do in your life? Do not wait, He brings you peace.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, you have taken my fears from my life. I walk in your light, no longer any darkness because of you. Your glory lights my way. In Jesus’ holy name, I pray that I never forget that, Amen.
Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you, Alleluia!
