Boats (3)

Jesus’ followers were in a boat on a lake. During the night, the wind became strong and blew against the boat. Jesus knew that His followers were afraid. So “Jesus went to the boat. Jesus was walking on the water” (verse 48b). In verse 50, Jesus said to His followers, “Don’t worry! It’s me! Don’t be afraid.”
When I was in college, my roommate became ill, so I drove her to her parents’ home. It was a long trip, and I had never been on those roads before. My roommate gave me directions, and I tried to remember all the turns for my trip back to college.
When I drove back to college, it was night. I got lost and ended up in another state! Finally I stopped at a small restaurant. A man asked me if I was lost. He got a map and marked the roads I needed to take to get back to college.
That night, I needed help — just like the followers in the boat needed help. God sent someone to help and direct me. He will help you today if you ask Him.
