Hi guys it’s Berta, how are you all doing i pray you have a blessed and wonderful day in the presence of our Lord JESUS Christ. The 15th of march 2019 i read these verses, I don’t know about you guys but these verses shocked me.
In the book of John 6:16-19 it is witten,
16: That evening Jesus’s disciples went down to the shore to wait for Him
17: But as darkness fell and Jesus still hadn’t come back, they got into the boat and headed across the lake toward Capernaum.
18: Soon a gale swept down upon them, and the sea grew very rough.
19: They had rowed three or four miles when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the water toward the boat. They were terrified.
My first question to the Holy spirit was, why did Jesus’s friends( disciples) left Him behind, why didn’t they wait until He came back and they would all go together on the boat to there next destination.
Then the Holy spirit responded, “isn’t that what you do every time?” and i was like “ummm, what do you mean”
Holy spirit: Well the disciples were Jesus’s friends just like you are right now , but just like them, you also start a project with Jesus and while He is preparing greater things in your life, you find He’s taking too long and leave Him behind.
Me: Oh ,well yes you are right i am impatient.
Holy spirit: and just like them whenever the sea starts to get a little rough, whenever your projects starts to fall down, and you begin to fail, and lose hope. Jesus, He is so loving that despite the fact that you left Him behind, during your time of troubles He is still there. He is walking on your storm boldly coming to help you His friend.
But you have to be ready, ready to let Him back in, but this time keep Him and be patient , the moment you let Him in He is going to bring you straight to your final destination the place where you will succeed in everthing you do, that place that He was preparing for you.
for it is written in verse 20-21
20: But He called out to them, don’t be afraid. I am here!
21: Then they were eager to let him in the boat, and immediately they arrived at their destination.
I would love to encourage you guys, please be patient i know it seems like things are taking too long , you may think that Jesus probably forgot you or left, But know this, Jesus never gives empty promises. He is right there preparing great things for you, be patient and most of all wait for HIm, walk with Him.
see you soon with another moment with the Holy Spirit.
