With Out A Doubt - Part 5

I Doubt I Can Make It Through The Storm

The One who is in you is greater than what you are going through.

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

Nothing bad happens to Jesus followers?

After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone. Matthew 14:23 NLT

Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. Matthew 14:24 NLT

Jesus always sees us in our storm.

About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. Matthew 14:25 NLT

When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!” Matthew 14:26 NLT

But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here! Matthew 14:27 NLT

Jesus always speaks to us in our storm.

Jesus loves us enough to let us go through a storm.

Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” Matthew 14:28 NLT

“Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. Matthew 14:29 NLT

Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?” Matthew 14:31 NLT

When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. Then the disciples worshiped him. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed. Matthew 14:32-33 NLT

You're not in a storm because you're being punished, but because you're being prepared.

In the storm we can understand the greatness of God.

After they had crossed the lake, they landed at Gennesaret. Matthew 14:34 NLT

If you're in a storm Jesus will always get you where you need to go.

"Jesus can't reach out and grab me."
