Under the Circumstances
“But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.” - Matthew 14:30
I ask some Christians, “How are you doing?” They say, “Well, I'm doing pretty well under the circumstances.” I want to say, “How did you ever get there?”
If you look at circumstances, you're going to fall. Remember when Peter was there in the boat, and Jesus came walking on the water. Jesus said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and started to walk on water through those boisterous waves! And I can imagine Peter said, “This is wonderful!”
Then an unkind wave slapped him in the face. He looked around at those waves and said, “This is impossible,” and he started to sink. He simply failed to look unto Jesus. He looked at circumstances.
Today, come what may, keep your eyes focused upon Jesus. Even the wind and the waves must bow to His command.
