Stop Looking At Your Problems.
“But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.” Mathew 14: 30
One of Satan’s strongest strategy is intimidation. He specializes in using circumstances to intimidate you to the point that if care is not taken, you will believe his lie more than what God has said. For instance when you pray for healing, he increases the symptom in order to lie to you that your prayer did not work. All he is waiting for is for you to abort your miracle by agreeing with him that the prayer did not work and he holds you on that word.
In the account from where our text was drawn, Jesus asked His disciples to get on the ship to cross to the other side of the ship and half way they encountered turbulence in the sea and every effort they made to calm it failed. Jesus walked on the sea to rescue them and since they had never experienced Him in that dimension before, they thought that He was a spirit. He however calmed them down and told them He was the one. Peter demanded to come to Him on the sea to confirm that He was the one. He invited Peter to come and Peter actually walked on the water.
Peter walked on the water for as long as his eyes were on Jesus. But when he stopped looking unto Jesus and focused on the wind, he began to sink. He saw the seriousness of the waves and fear took a hold of him. Anytime you take your eye off the word of God you will see things turn around you that will cause fear to rise up within you and cause you to sink.
When you observe lying vanities from the devil you will forsake your mercy. The wind here represents the challenges that you are facing. Look unto the word always as the final word. No matter what the activities of the devil may be, stay focused on the word of God. The word of God will produce for you. Stop looking at the wind.
