Oct 27 - “WE TWO !”

 “And when they were come into the ship the wind ceased” (Matt 14.32).

Yes, it is amazingly true. When Jesus comes into the ship of our lives, the wind ceases, and there is a calm.

The most amazing part of this incident is recorded by St. John. “Then they willingly received Him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.” Till Jesus boarded the ship, the ship was in a miserable state, tossed to and fro, and still in the midst of the sea, though they had rowed and toiled all night. You cannot make much progress – in your life or in your ministry – without Jesus. “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Psa 127:1).

While Jesus and Peter walking on the water is a great miracle, a greater miracle is that of the ship (that was in the middle of the sea) reaching the shore as soon as Jesus stepped into it! Perhaps your life is a struggle because you have not invited Jesus into your life to be the captain of the ship. Enter into a partnership with Jesus now and see the change.

Dear child of God, let Jesus be always found in the ship of your life, in the centre of all your plans. Let Him be your captain, guide, refuge and remedy. If so, you will reach the heavenly shore without difficulty.

           “I cannot do it alone;

           The waves run fast and high

           And the fogs close chill around

           And the light goes out in the sky;

           But I know that we too shall win –

           In the end – Jesus and I.”
