Read Matthew 14: 22-33
"But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out,'Lord, save me!'" NIV
"But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me." KJV
When we keep our eyes on the Lord, we are better able to overcome the adversities of this life. With our eyes on Him, we stay strong in faith and assurance that He is with us and will take care of us. But, we have a tendency to take our eyes off Him and look at the problems that are around us and we become overwhelmed. Then we lose heart and cry out for God to help us. He is always right here for us. We just need to focus on His, not the battles and challenges going on in our lives.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for letting our faith falter so that we focus on the problems and battles going on in our lives. Help us to use the faith You have so graciously given each of us so that we can keep our eyes on You and experience the peace of knowing You have everything in control and You will always be right here with us. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
