WHEN THE  DISCIPLES  SAW HIM WALKING ON THE SEA
THEY WERE TROUBLED, SAYING, IT IS A GHOST!   AND
THEY CRIED OUT FOR FEAR.  BUT IMMEDIATELY JESUS
SPOKE TO THEM, SAYING, BE OF GOOD CHEER!  IT IS I;
DO NOT BE AFRAID.  SO HE SAID, COME. AND WHEN
PETER HAD CAME DOWN OUT OF THE BOAT HE WALKED
ON THE WATER TO GO TO JESUS.  BUT HE SAW THAT
THE WIND WAS BOISTEROUS, HE WAS AFRAID; AND
BEGINNING TO SINK HE CRIED OUT SAYING “LORD SAVE
ME.”
( MATTHEW 14:26,27,29 &30 *NKJV )

Dear Friend,
Now Peter began to sink because he took his eyes
off of Jesus, and focused on the waves all around him.  This
was because his faith faltered.  So what did Peter do but
reach out to Jesus who was the only one that could save
him!  You see Peter forgot to; 
WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY
SIGHT.  ( 2 CORINTHIANS 5:7 )

Now we may not be walking on water, but when our
troubles surround us, if we focus on them instead of placing
our faith in Jesus, we will start to sink as well!

So Friend, when you are facing difficulties and
troubles surround you; keep your eyes on Jesus’ power
rather then on your problems.  Also when you are
apprehensive about your troubles, and if you doubt Christ’s
presence or His great ability to help; remember that He is
the only one that can really help you as well!

So tonight why not read this story. You will find it in The
Book of Matthew, Chapter 14, verses 22-33, for wonderful
reading it truly is!

Finally Friend, WATCH, STAND FAST IN THE FAITH
BE BRAVE, BE STRONG.  LET ALL YOU DO BE DONE
WITH LOVE.  Amen.            ( 1 CORINTHIANS 16:13 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
