The Lord Saves

Lots of folks love the following scriptural account:

Matthew 14:28-32 – KJV

And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

How many times have we faced boisterous winds in our lives and the Lord saved us? Challenges of various sorts confront us, but when we cling to Jesus, ways out are always made. We are repeatedly saved. Yes, salvation is ongoing. Day by day we experience forms of it. Immense gratitude flows for how the Lord rewards our love and faithfulness with divine ever present help.

Peter walked on water; his faith wavered. I still admire that he got out of the boat to walk. I love his movement forward. How loving that Jesus stretched forth his hand and caught his disciple. Yes, a cherished memory, indeed.

The Lord continues to stretch forth his hand to people — with invitations, comfort, peace, joy, warnings and whatever else deemed necessary to aid us in our journeys. Yes, Jesus continues to save.

Lessons are plentiful as we navigate through our lives. It’s a wondrous relief to know that nothing is too hard for God. Help is ever present and that makes the challenges less jarring. Yes, knowledge of the awesomeness of the Lord provides immense levels of comfort and reassurances.

Salvation continues and gratitude flows that we have the greatest to love, teach, and to provide for us. High and jubilant praises to God!
