Walking (8)

While Jesus was on earth, He did many miracles. These miracles proved that Jesus was truly God’s Son. Sometimes Jesus healed people or raised them from the dead. Other times, He removed demons from people. In the miracle in today’s Bible Reading, Jesus walked on Lake Galilee. Jesus showed that He can control nature.
I live in an area where tornadoes occur during the summertime. No man can control a tornado or direct where it will go. As I write this devotion, many hurricanes are developing in the Caribbean Sea. No human can control these terrible storms. But Jesus has control over everything in nature.
Jesus’ followers in the boat were scared when they saw Jesus. They had never seen anyone walk on water! But in verse 20, Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid. It’s me.” Then the followers were happy.
Jesus can control nature. He can also help us with our problems every day. We don’t need to be afraid when we face problems. Depend on Him today!
