Mark 6:45-52 Living Bible (TLB)

Jesus is constantly directing us to trust His Word imparted to our hearts; He is Truth and he cannot lie.  If Jesus (Living Word) imparts it, He will make sure that Word is accomplished in our lives.   In birthing terms, we become spiritually pregnant with the Word and we will deliver or manifest the Word in the appointed time.  It’s a promise.  With that in mind, we must remember, in the midst of the promise, Satan comes to catch us off guard and get us to be filled with fear or doubt and halt the Word.  We must “want” to believe and press on in faith.  May the Word today minister to your heart and make you spiritually stronger.

Mark 6:45-52 Living Bible (TLB)

45 Immediately after this Jesus instructed his disciples to get back into the boat and strike out across the lake to Bethsaida, where he would join them later. He himself would stay and tell the crowds good-bye and get them started home.

46 Afterwards he went up into the hills to pray. 47 During the night, as the disciples in their boat were out in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land, 48 he saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves.

About three o’clock in the morning he walked out to them on the water. He started past them, 49 but when they saw something walking along beside them, they screamed in terror, thinking it was a ghost, 50 for they all saw him.

But he spoke to them at once. “It’s all right,” he said. “It is I! Don’t be afraid.” 51 Then he climbed into the boat and the wind stopped!

They just sat there, unable to take it in! 52 For they still didn’t realize who he was, even after the miracle the evening before! For they didn’t want to believe!

Prayer:  Lord, thank you for the Word and for the promise to see it come to pass.  Help me to hold onto the Word and endure the wind and waves of life, because I know you walk with me.   In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
