Matthew 14: 23 And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone. 24 But the boat was by this time out on the sea, many furlongs [a furlong is one-eighth of a mile] distant from the land, beaten and tossed by the waves, for the wind was against them. 25 And in the fourth watch [between 3:00—6:00 a.m.] of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.
Many times we face situations in life where it our boat seems to have drifted beyond our reach leaving us stranded. A friend that you thought will always be there is suddenly no longer there. A job that provided financial security for you suddenly is no more, leaving you wondering about your future. A spouse you shared your life with dies or walks out.
Like Jesus, there will be times in life when it appears to be that you are stranded. It is particularly in seasons like this that a clear revelation of your purpose is often priceless! Jesus’ purpose was to die on the cross and not to be stranded on some hills. So He just walked on water!
In Mark 4:38, there was storm in the seas and the disciples, most of whom were experienced seamen were worried and scared for their lives. But Jesus was asleep in the boat. I believe He had no reason to be worried because He was born to die on the cross and not drown in the sea.
When you know why you were born, when you have a revelation of the promises of God for your life, you will find the courage to walk on the things should drown you.When you get a revelation of God’s will for your life, you will have the audacity to to sleep in the midst of every storm in you life.
You are not a mistake. Your existence here is not by chance. You are a seed of a dream God had on the earth. Above all else today, I pray that you find the very reason you were born. Every courage, faith, confidence you need to overcome everything you face in life can be found in your purpose. There is provision the your vision.
