FEBRUARY 27 “Peter answered Him and said, ‘Lord, if it is You, bid me come to You on the water.’” — Matthew 14:28

The Secret to Walking on Water

As we know, one night when the disciples were on the Sea of Galilee and Jesus was not present, a storm came up. They were afraid and even thought they saw a ghost. It was Jesus, walking on the water. Then, impetuous Peter said, “If it is you, let me walk on the water to You.” And Jesus said, “Come.”  Peter, climbing up the gunnel of the ship, steps down upon the water, no doubt very hesitantly. Holding on to the... More
FEBRUARY 26 “Woe unto the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short.” — Revelation 12:12

The Real Super Bowl

Every year millions of Americans eagerly await the Super Bowl. This is when the two most successful and powerful teams in the country meet together for a final conflict, for the championship of the world, preceded by a long competition leading up to the final event. But when you think about it, there is a real Super Bowl, which is of far greater consequence than any football game. I am talking about a supernatural bowl in which there are... More
FEBRUARY 25 “He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. About the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.” — Mark 6:48

The God of 11:59 P.M.

God’s timing is perfect. But sometimes, we may feel that Christ seems far away. Let me assure you He is watching you and is able to come to your aid. It may not be nearly as soon as you would like, but life is a school, and we have to be left to learn the lessons. I believe life’s great central lesson is to learn to trust Him. As we know, when the disciples were on the Sea of Galilee one night, at Jesus’ instructions, a... More
FEBRUARY 24 “For He has said: ‘I will never leave you, nor forsake you.’” — Hebrews 13:5

Remembering God’s Presence in Our Lives

How often it is with us, that in the midst of our distresses and troubles, we think God is far away—that Christ is far away—and we seem to be all on our own without any resources or help. Sometimes we despair; we are terrified. But Christ is watching us. Whatever problem we are in, though Christ may seem far away, He is there, watching, and He is willing and able to come to our need. Oftentimes it seems He comes in the very last... More

FEBRUARY 23 “And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not give up.” — Galatians 6:9

The Temptation to Quit

The temptation to quit is a very powerful temptation, because unlike some other temptations it does not take any effort to quit. To quit, one does not have to do anything. He just stops, sits down, and gives up. Quitting is just a matter of stopping our fight with entropy, which is always tending to push everything down and bring it into chaos and disorder. We need to realize that we quit through discouragement because we lose... More
FEBRUARY 22 “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” — Psalm 69:30

Washington the Christian

Some people question the Christianity of George Washington, but the facts speak for themselves. He was a vestryman in good standing in the Episcopal Church at a time when their doctrine conformed closely to evangelical teaching. He was well-known for his godly disposition and his fervent prayer life, for instance, when he was spotted kneeling in prayer at Valley Forge. His prayers were answered as God sovereignly helped the fledgling nation... More
