Don't Drown When You're Within Arms Reach (Matthew 14:22-33)

When you get stuck, God is always there. When salvation is called, God makes the first move in asking you to be saved. It's up to you to take the next step. You might be right in the middle of a tough life working hard but not getting anywhere. But keep working with God because where you came from is worse then were God is taking you. Some are drowning in their own pride but Jesus is just an arms length away. One sees the destruction around them and feels overwhelmed. Satan will always push back when salvation is near. You might feel it's your darkest time but God is always there. The lost needs to see that they're lost before they need to be found. The lost need to see that they are falling into an eternity of hell before being lifted up into heaven. There is always a 100% decision each time the Word of God is given. Either you decide to do what God says or you choose to do your will. One can drown in their own strength. Mark 5:25-26 You must realize that you can't do it on your own. Our own righteousness is as dirty rags. Mark 5:27-34 Give up and give it to God. In you faith and believing, God will make you whole. Ephesians 8:12 Your faith is what will make you whole. Drowning in discouragement of escape. If you think that you can't get out of it, you can though Christ. Exodus 14:10-14 God will fight for you. You can never get out of your problems but God can. Luke 23:39-43 Don't drown within arms reach of God. You're no further away as the next person. John 3:36 Tomorrow is uncertain, but forever is sure.

Matthew 14:22-33

22And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God. (KJV)
