God is loving
In HIS Presence


Read: Mathew 14:25-33

Meditation verse:

“And immediately, Jesus. Stretched out His hand and caught him and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?

Peter had come out of the boat and began to walk on the water towards Jesus. What a life defining moment it must have been for him. But then he took his eyes of the Lord and looked at the boisterous wind. And then he began to sink. As he cried out to Jesus, “Lord, save me”, Jesus immediately reached out His hand and caught him. And then He gently added “why did you doubt?” 

What a gracious and loving Father we have. Psalm 103:8-14 says:

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.


Your heavenly Father does not condemn you. That voice of accusation and condemnation belongs to the devil. The bible refers to him as the accuser of brethren. Irrespective of how much you feel you have messed up in life, reach out to Jesus today and say, “save me oh Lord”. He would reach out and save you immediately as he did with Peter.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
