DAY 35 - Don't Be Afraid of the Wind
Today’s Reading: Matthew 14
(Please read Matthew 14: 1 – 36 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)
Please click the links below to Matthew 14:
“But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid”
Matthew 14: 27
There are so many time thatwe have to face with various kind of frightening winds. The death of John the Baptist was a 'big wind' for Jesus. The completing of the miracle to feed the 5000 was another big wind for he was hailed and followed by so many with expectation.
Both time the Bible recorded that the secret for Jesus to face with the big wind was to withdrew privately to a solitary place to pray. Are you facing with a strong wind? What was the last time you had a strong wind? What is your secret?
If your secret is not prayers, I think you miss what Jesus teaches us!
Withdrew, privately, solitary place, to pray are the four steps I was called by Jesus this morning to do it more regularly. Are you going to do it? It will make a difference in you life!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to really withdraw privately to a solitary place to pray more often that I can face all sorts of big winds. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
