Growing faith // 08-10-19

“Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home.” Matthew‬ ‭14:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The miracle of feeding a crowd of over 5000 people has just happened, night is closing in fast, the disciples were probably feeling elated but tired, so what does Jesus tell them to do in this master class of building their faith? He sends them into choppy waters without Him where a storm is brewing! It doesn’t seem fair or safe, but would they trust Him? Would they still obey Him? Don’t expect the will of God to be plain sailing, but get in the boat anyway and go while you can. You might just be heading into the right environment for seeing who God really is, where you can experience His supernatural power and where your faith can truly flourish as you see Him at work! How it feels is beside the point, it won’t feel comfortable but keep watching for Jesus, you are never out of His sight! 🙏🏼
