Fix Your Eyes
Fix your eyes firmly upon My face and not upon the tumultuous waves around you. The enemy is creating circumstances that are contrary to Me, which sole purpose is to drown out the voice of My people and, and you must make a conscious decision not to look or listen to it. Speak forth My Word! Speak it with authority and with expectation and confidence in My faithfulness to you. Know that though the enemy makes a lot of noise, I AM Lord of the Sea and the Lord of Life, and his determination to destroy doesn’t touch My love for you. Match your words and cadence to Mine, knowing I am with you, and as you walk forward, take My hand and let Me lead you to a place of rest. It is possible to rest in the storm. Let Me show you how, and amid it all, I will prove Myself God on your behalf!
Matt. 14:22-33, “ Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. But the boat was now [b]in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
