Staying focused on a task these days can prove to be quite difficult. How many times have you gotten distracted while doing a task? Distractions can be hard to ignore: a ringing phone, a chatty coworker, or a wandering thought-we’ve all been there! And once you attend to the distraction, at times, it can be difficult to get back on track.
We can probably relate to Peter in more ways than one: “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Matthew 14:29-30
We must stay focused on our journey with the Lord. Peter got distracted by the winds and waves, haven’t we all been there? But imagine what Peter could have achieved if he just remained focused on the Lord?!
Imagine how your prayer life, how your bible study, and ministry life would be strengthened if you just remained focused on the Lord. The winds and the waves of life are so incredibly ever-present, but so is the Lord, YOUR God! He has authority over the winds and the waves!
He is with you, even in the midst of the winds and waves of life. As you focus on Him, begin to speak to those winds and waves, telling them to be still! As you focus on the Lord, tell your winds and waves that they won’t distract you from your mission and purpose in Christ. Cliche but true, tell your winds and waves how BIG your God is!
Just focus and walk, trusting Him along the way, with your winds and waves.
Peace and Blessings
