Be brave…I am here…outside your comfort zone
“Be brave and don’t be afraid.
The Passion Translation
Today as I read in Matthew 14 where the disciples are in a storm on the lake, I imagined being in the boat with them. It must’ve been quite a storm because many of the men were seasoned fishermen, and they were afraid. Around 4 am, Jesus approached them, walking on water. Unexpected, terrifying them. They thought he was a ghost. That’s when Jesus said to them, “Be brave and don’t be afraid. I am here.” One thing I didn’t see before in the story is, as soon as Jesus and Peter got in the boat, the storm ceased. Jesus’ presence. God with us. I don’t need to be afraid. Jesus is here with me, in my story. Even the wind and the sea obey Him.
