Are you looking at the Wind?-Matthew 14:30

Are you looking at the wind?- Matthew 14:30 “But when he saw the wind he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”

I pray the year has started on a good note for you. Some of us are yet to make any move, because we are still waiting for directions from the Lord.

One thing the Lord has been highlighting to me in the past week, is that many people are being crippled by FEAR. And these fears come in different shades and degrees but one that sticks out for me is the fear of past experiences that stops us from experiencing the possibilities of the “present`’

In the scripture reference above it says, Peter “saw” the wind. Does anyone actually see the wind? I believe Peter as a professional fisherman understood the devastating effect of storms from past experiences. In the previous verse Peter had been affirmed by the Lord to come to Him, and he was fearless enough to do as Jesus’ bid him. He stepped out and he kept his focus on Jesus, but the moment he “saw” the wind, he became afraid. My believe is Peter did not see a physical wind but His mind took over and his past experiences was probably brought to the fore, which made him doubt and become fearful.

This year let us keep our gaze on Jesus and not allow our mind or past experiences to derail us from the possibilities from what we can achieve-Ephesians 4:23. Don’t take your eyes off Jesus as you navigate the course He has for you this year.

And if for any reason sudden fear comes, you can always cry out to the Lord to save you like Peter did v30-31 and Jesus is always ready to reach out to you. His promise to us is that ‘He will never leave nor forsake us’

Let faith arise for exploits this year! V31

Thank you for reading and for your prayers, which has allowed me to take the message to the nations and to raise up Gatekeepers which is necessary for this season. I believe what the Lord is about to do on the earth now can only be sustained in Prayers and Intercession.

Would you consider giving either a one-off gift to the Gatekeeper Ministry or better still regular giving to help us push further at this critical hour.
