When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them. A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened. But he said to them,“It is I; don’t be afraid.”Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.(John 6:16-21)
God is not limited to the natural laws of the universe. Do you know why? Because He is God! God uses the natural laws, but He is not obligated to follow them. He made them, but sometimes He chooses to operate outside the natural laws that He set in motion. This is where miracles enter the scene.
For instance, when Jesus walked on the water, He did so to show His glory, His power, and His Lordship. He did this to give the Father ultimate glory. He did so to prove that nothing is impossible with Him.
Just like Jesus performed this seemingly impossible miracle back then, He could perform a miracle in your life today, as well. What miracle would you like to see God perform in the midst of your current circumstances? Is it healing a terrible illness? Is it redeeming the life of a wayward child? Is it restoring a marriage that is on the rocks? Whatever it is, God can perform the miracle if it is in accordance with His will.
Don’t hesitate to ask God to do big things in your life. Don’t doubt His ability to still execute miracles and accomplish the impossible. He is just as capable now as He was when He walked on the water, and He will do whatever it takes to give you His best and bring ultimate glory to Himself.
