Today’s Encouragement is Matthew 14:30-31 NLT But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.  Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”
Save me, Lord –
When we are:
…Cry out “Save me, Lord!”
When there’s nothing we can do, helpless; we may’ve fallen into a trap, or we may have walked into that trap intentionally!
Peter had a split-second moment of clarity… and saw he was sinking. He didn’t swim for the boat, he didn’t try to find another way out of his dire circumstance, he had no time for anything but a desperate cry to the One who could save him, “Save me, Lord”
And please note Jesus’ response. “Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him.”
Immediately! My friends, do you realize that Christ is always our Savior? Not just once, at the time we choose to follow Him, but always. In tiny and huge ways… He saves!
And He is with us always (Matt 18:10) and always ready to save.
And there is no condemnation in Christ (Rom 8:1), he doesn’t condemn or criticize, but like Peter, he may ask us probing questions… “Why did you doubt me?” “Why did you choose this path?” But the questions come only after He has saved, again, always.
With just our asking… “Lord, Save me!” – He saves!
Thank You, Lord, for always saving us, always forgiving us, always being with us, even as we begin to ‘sink’. You are so good to us!
Cry out to Jesus
