You Are Guarded by Jesus' Power
Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. He came to them, walking on the sea…. (Mark 6:48)
It was nighttime, the close of a great day. A miracle occurred, and more than 5,000 people witnessed it—“the feeding of the 5,000.” Men, women, and children ate till they were filled, and all the menu offered was a boy’s lunch: five loaves and two fish. Afterward, twelve baskets of bread and fish fragments remained. What a day—to have seen that!
As it drew to an end, Jesus sent His disciples on ahead in the boat while He withdrew to spend time with His Father in prayer. Jesus saw His disciples way out on the Sea of Galilee, toiling and rowing in a fierce storm. He was never unaware of where they were or what was happening.
Are you in the midst of a storm? Do you know He sees you right now? You say, “He doesn’t know where I am. He doesn’t know this difficulty. Why is He so far away? Why am I in the storm and He is on the shore?” Friend, He is there, and He’s praying for you. He’s up there on the mountain looking down. He sees right through the dark. You can’t see Him, but He sees you. Be sure of this: “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”
In the midst of your storm, see Jesus, the great I AM! See Him walking on the water. The situation that looks like it’s going to be over your head is already under His feet. You’re seated in the heavenlies with Him. You can’t drown with your head above water. He is the great I AM. You are guarded by His power.
