Rock the Boat – Jesus Can Get You Out of ANY Trouble!

When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them. A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.

When they had rowed three or three and a half miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified. But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.

(John 6:16-21)

—-

The disciples were in a rough, hard, and terrifying situation… being out there on that dark night all by themselves on the Sea of Galilee.

I can imagine the reaction of the disciples when they looked up…. and saw Jesus walking across over 3 miles of water and reaching them.

We all have “Seas of Galilee” in our lives, whether it is financial in nature… whether it is in our relationships… whether it is in your health… we all have “rough & choppy” seasons in our lives where we can’t seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Jesus showed his disciples a few things that I believe that we can all learn from.

What Jesus proved to them in that circumstance was two-fold:

(1)  There is NO problem too big for Jesus — After all, he walked across three miles of water… he created the whole earth & the fullness of it all, so that means there is NOTHING we can go through that is too big for him!

(2) Welcome Jesus into your problems — After the disciples welcomed Jesus into the boat, the Bible says the disciples “immediately” reached their destination. When we welcome Jesus into our problems, issues, and circumstances; we can EXPECT him to get us to that light at the end of a long tunnel!

When you put your trust in the Lord and put all your faith & troubles on Him.. He WILL by all means get you through the rough and choppy turns of life.

Be blessed today and walk in God’s abundance today!

  • Sometimes the storms in our life come from not waiting on Jesus. Impatiences can get us in a whole heap of trouble.

    Sometimes the things that we THINK are storms are just illusions of the enemy. Jesus told the disciples in another story to go to the other side of the sea. They believed the storm over the Savior.

    Boldly choose to listen, wait and believe all that the Savior has for you.
