A Well-Timed Rescue

Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water.—Matthew 14:24-25

It has been said that when you get to the end of yourself, you get to the beginning of God. Many times when hardship comes, we have our own plans for how to handle it. We have plan A, B, C, D, and E. And after we have exhausted all of those, we find ourselves in that place where we say, "If God doesn’t come through for me, it is over with. This is horrible." But actually, it is not horrible, because it is an opportunity for God to show His glory.

Patience And God’s Miracle’s

“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” James 1:2-3.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a commentary titled “Everything Falls Apart”. Before I go any further, let me just say I’ve not changed my opinion which I expressed in that commentary. It’s just a fact everything around us is deteriorating, basically falling apart. We grow older every day; it’s unavoidable and inevitable that someday we will die. Time is the contributing factor and at some point we realize it crept up on us practically unseen. Then of course time runs out.
