Remember that Peter wanted Jesus to prove that it was indeed He walking on the water by allowing him (Peter) to come to him by also walking on the water. Peter was able to do just that UNTIL he took his eyes off Jesus which caused him to begin to sink, right?
I was thinking about that event, and the Lord placed a wave in front of my eyes, and I heard Jesus say, “Look through the wave,” and that’s when I saw Him.
When I think about this, He shows me that it’s not just the “big wave” that comes to block our view of Him but also the very thought of one coming that causes us to sink. There is no question that these waves come and will continue to come throughout our lives. Instead of thinking about them, though, we must reframe our thinking to how muddled we will allow them to be.
Yes, they’re big waves – often HUGE! Yes, they are ugly, dark, and capable of filling our lungs to prevent air of life! BUT GOD!
Allow not the gulps of water! Allow not a drop to be consumed! Keep your eyes open to SEE through each wave, and you will see Him!
He wants us to walk on the water as victors of our circumstances- no matter the size of the storm- and when the waves seem too big, it doesn’t mean we are sinking, for we are already overcomers, it simply means that we must look THROUGH those waves to see Him.
I receive this as a word to NOT be thinking of the “what ifs” of the future and to just keep our eyes on Him. The waves come, but when we are STILL, our vision is clear, and we can SEE through them…to SEE HIM.
“Be still and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10
