“Amidst our fright, we must consistently commit ourselves to memory, for this fear ignites the forgetfulness that continuously threatens our faith in God…”
Jesus’ walk on the water bellows a profound statement that continues to incriminate our memory today, as the scripture, in a larger capacity, shows us that His walk was preceded by His miraculous multiplication of the loaves and fish, which was also witnessed by His disciples. Yet, this “unforgettable” and faith-strengthening moment seemed to be forgotten as they struggled to sail the rough seas, while riddled with fear and desperation.
Ironically, we can surely recount the countless times we have sailed through our own unexpected and treacherous storms, while too deeply worried, afraid and desperate for quick redress ,that we failed to recall not only God’s glorious presence and promise, but the many times, for us, He has resolved, restored and conquered.
Amidst our fright, we must consistently commit ourselves to memory, for this fear ignites the forgetfulness that continuously threatens our faith in God and the remembrance that it is indeed Him! Ever-present and forever merciful and we need not be afraid, but continue to sail life’s rough seas in memory of Him.
