It had been a long day of ministering when Jesus ordered his disciples into a boat and told them to cross the Sea of Galilee. 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. It had been a long day of ministering when Jesus ordered his disciples into a boat and told them to cross the Sea of Galilee. But the sun had set; this was no time to get into a boat. Evening had fallen! Before the wind had blown or a wave had risen, it was already a dangerous situation. But the same God who sent the disciples across the sea is the same One who stirred up that sea! And amidst wild winds and high waves, Jesus came walking on the water saying, “It is I; do not be afraid.” It is only when the men invited Jesus into the boat, that the danger dissipated. They instantly went from rowing to resting on the opposite shore. So today, are you facing a storm? Remember your sovereign God is the one who stirs up the very waters He sends you into. So please invite Jesus to step into your boat today. Let Him take you from rowing to resting.
