Turning Fear Into Faith Part 5

Turning Fear Into Faith Part 5

Matthew 14:27
“But immediately Jesus spoke to them saying, “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”

In this story the disciples were told to go before Jesus in the boat to the other side of the sea. Jesus went up to the mountain by Himself to pray. This story tells us several things and I would like to point out a few today. First this is the story where Jesus walked on water, but before He did that what did He do? That’s right He went out alone and prayed. Then he came back walking on water, pretty prayed up right. Secondly in this verse 26, the Bible says that the disciples were crying in terror, cried out in fear and were troubled. And it says IMMEDIATELY Jesus spoke to them to have courage and not to be afraid.

God is telling you today, the thing you are going through in your life, the thing that is troubling you, don’t be afraid because He is with you to go through the storms, the trials, and the good times and bad times.
