In HIS Presence


Read: Luke 8:22-39
Meditation verse:
“Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.” And they launched out” (Luke 8:22).

As Jesus and His disciples got into the boat and sailed to cross over to the other side, a windstorm came down on the lake. The boat began to fill with water, and they were in jeopardy. Whilst this was going on, Jesus was fast asleep. When they woke Him up, crying that they were perishing, He rebuked the wind and raging water, and there was calm. The journey was hazardous, but when they got to the other side, a demon possessed man who had been living in the tomb without clothes for a long time, regained his senses and became an evangelist throughout the whole city.

What step are you so afraid of taking? What hurdle looks too impossible to cross? What journey do you consider too difficult to embark on? Your next level miracle may be waiting for you at the other side of what you dread the most. As soon as Jesus spoke to His disciples about crossing to the other side of the lake. they got in and launched out. Chances are the Holy Spirit is prompting you to
move in a particular direction. How will you respond? Will you rise in faith to do the needful or will you sit back in doubt? Until you cross over, you may never know what awaits you on the other side.

The key to receiving your miracle lies in stepping out and acting. God will not stirrup your spirit unless He has gone ahead to make provision for you. Perhaps, you tried in the past to cross over but got discouraged by the challenges you encountered. Let the word of God come alive in your heart again to stir you up. The journey may be difficult, but if you can persevere and get to the other side, you will receive your healing, provision, and testimony. You only need to be sure that you have Jesus in the boat of your life.

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.
