[1 Kings 19:9a,11-13a] [Romans 9:1-5] [Matthew 14:22-33]

Isn’t it heartening to know we can count on God’s unconditional love, faithfulness & care to help us in our walk of life? Elijah was fleeing from Queen Jezebel who wanted to revenge the deaths of the prophets of Baal. God manifested his powers over the elements & showed Elijah who should be feared instead. God also gave Elijah instructions with ramifications for the royal house of Israel. Peter did walked on the water. However, after having noticed the wind, he began to sink (Matthew 14: 30). As we make efforts to grow in our faith in Jesus, do we allow the vicious winds & the deep dark sea of our world to shake our faith in Him? At moments of our darkest nights, do we, like Peter, reach out to our Lord & hold Him firmly? Every time fumbling Peter fell, he rose again - with Jesus’s help. His failures only made him love & trust the Lord more deeply. Let us cling & fix our steady gaze on Jesus, our Model of Holiness & pride ourselves only in Him! Remember, we serve a Living, Loving & Almighty God!
