Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?

When we take our eyes off of Jesus we are heading for spiritual fall. Joseph a son of Jehovah
What can take our eyes off of Jesus?
Which on of these categories do you fall into: there is problems in my family ( instead of fretting about these problems and being a dingbat and trying to fix them yourself, why not do the wise thing and give it over to Jesus. He will send the best guidance councilor, the Holy Spirit to help you.),
I need money. I don’t think there has been a time since money was made when people didn’t have this concern. Again rely on Jesus to supply your needs. Didn’t He promise He would take care of us when He said:” Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.”
I’m sick. Now this is the time to get into deep relationship with God because that is when you are weak and through His divine strength He will help you. He may not cure you but give you the strength to endure it.
When we keep our eyes focused on Jesus He will give us everything we need to handle any crisis.
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrew 4: 16 New Living Translation)
You know, one time I was going through the most painful experience in my life. It was recovering from a terribly abusive relationship. In my deep anguish I, a broken man, sobbed to Jesus to come and rescue me from this pit of hell. Through an internet Pen Pals site and a Christian radio program I noticed while searching the internet (Focus on the Family I was introduced to loving caring Christian councilors that helped lift me out of that hell and heal me. I am forever indebted to both them and my wonderful Jesus for bringing them into my life at that moment.
Now my whole commitment is unto Jehovah God our beloved Abba.
The greatest honor is to be a servant of the greatest king, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
