“…Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.”
(Matthew 14: 25)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
When Jesus came to His disciples in the midst of the stormy sea, He walked on the sea. The waves and contrary wind were yet to cease, the challenge that wanted to sink the ship was yet to be taken away, and Jesus walked on the sea. Jesus walked on troubled waters, and the waters did not drown Him. The troubled water was under Jesus’ feet.
Friend, God says, every storm around you is under your feet. The wicked plots of your adversaries are under your feet; the satanic gang up and negative gossip against you is under your feet; the wishes of the enemy against you are under your feet; whatever the enemy wants to use and sink your ship is under your feet; the waves may threaten your ship, but God says, it is under your feet.
The storms in your life may threaten to consume you, but God says, walk on your troubled waters; you can make progress despite the harsh operating environment; you can be lifted despite the haters around you; you can be great despite the obstacles under your feet.
The waves and the contrary wind were not in Jesus’ favour, but they did nothing against Him. Hear God’s prophetic word: even if the storms are against you, nothing will go wrong in your life. Even if everyone around you is a hater, their hate won’t reduce your destiny.
Arise in prayers and spiritual warfare; trample upon every storm that wants to consume you, and every wickedness launched against you; prayerfully tread on ‘snakes’ that want to bite you, and crush every physical or spiritual force that wants to sink your ship.
Luke 10 vs. 19 sums it up: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Pray With Me: Lord, every challenge against me is under my feet, in Jesus’ name!
