Inspiration…

My Inspiration today,comes from the words of one of my favorite songs.It is a gentle ,loving reminder ,that no matter where we are in our lives…whether facing life and its challenges…no matter how “the storms” in life might find us.. He (God,His Son,and His Loving Spirit) are with us….

The song ,I am talking about is “Hide Myself”….by Michael W. Smith….The words to it …speak to my heart…..That no matter  how big that storm might get ,and life  does hand us some big ones….we are reminded in the lyrics  of this lovely song……to depend on Him..With one word from Him ,the thunder was silenced…. the wind ceased….and the storm had to obey Him…We are fearful,fretful creatures ,in our flesh ….we are scared of everything and  everyone…..we cease to be ,who He created us to be….because we turn away …..from Him telling us ,that even in the midst of all these things,we need Him ….we can Trust Him …

The Apostle Peter,and those who  were with him in that boat ,on that Sea(Galilee)….was one of the first examples,of how our humanity …..our flesh ,easily doubts Christ…..the winds  and the waves ,scared the “Be-Jesus” out of them…Here’s a thought,they forgot Who was in the boat with them….(sleeping)…Who else ,but God Incarnate…..Jesus Christ…the One sent by the Father,for God’s Good Purpose…yet,they couldn’t “be  Jesus” if they wanted to….

They cried out ,to Him ….Master…(HELP US…..WE ARE GOING TO PERISH…or something to that effect….)If He is with us…..how can we perish ,if Life …..the Light of the World,The One …..is WITH us ….in our “boat”? Jesus….then….decided to show them,the Power of God …In Him…..they  looked out  over the water….and in the midst of that storm ,they saw a figure…. thinking it couldn’t be anything  other than a ghost…..(That’s what they get for “thinking” of what is and isn’t possible…HA…..  Jesus then ,decided to call on Peter….(Question:”Why did He choose,out of all His disciples…..Peter?He could’ve chosen any one of them ….just saying..I only know that He chose Peter for a good reason….)

Peter was called ,to step out of that boat,as it was in the midst of a storm….He reaches His hand  to  Peter…..saying “Come to Me”….and  for a second, or two …Peter does have his  eyes fixed  On Jesus…..but ,suddenly ,with a sudden rush ….doubt enters the mind of Peter….because he looked around him ,and  became fearful……and started to sink…Jesus ,being God… who resides in the heavenly Holy of Holies….reaches down as Peter sinks…and pulls him out of the tumultuous sea….and sets him aright …. back in the safety of  the boat.

He said to Peter,something like this….”Why did you doubt Me?”

That’s my reminder for the day ,that has stayed with me……He does everything He Wills…He doesn’t will everything He can do…if that happened, what cause would there to be to Trust in Him?People didn’t accept what He did do ……minus a remnant…. who did…they knew to remember  how Great He is ….and what He can do ,even if we don’t see it…
