  Study Tools

Introduction:

Some Christians today are unaware of what God can do through their lives. God does mighty works not through our SKILLS but through our WILLS.

Several simple steps to experience a great miracle:

1. LOOK unto Jesus

* This involves knowing who Jesus is and what He can do

* This involves believing who Jesus is and what He can do.

* Fear causes our eyes not to see what Jesus can do

* Things that give us fear, if overcome, lead us closer to Jesus.

2. LIVE beyond life’s convenience

* The light of God’s power is brighter during dark moments of life.

* Our comforts, sometimes, would deafen our ears from the invitation of Jesus.

* Being well-settled, sometimes, would also restrain us from taking a step of faith. Thus, our comforts and luxuries confine us, highlighting a threat of failure whenever we opt to take uncertain step for God.

3. LEARN from your mistakes

* One of the greatest blunders of Christian walk is to trust in our skills, and not on the power of God (Peter was a sea expert).

* Another great blunder is to defocus our eyes from Jesus and focus our attention on our circumstances (Peter began to notice the waves).

4. LEAN on the everlasting arms.

* Acknowledge that without Jesus we can do nothing (Peter cried out to Jesus, he did not lean on his swimming skills)

* Trust that with Christ who strengthens us, we can do all things (Peter had the experience of walking on the water/waves).

* "It is not by might nor by power but by the Holy Spirit".

Conclusion:

Ponder upon this:

* Jesus and Peter both walked on the water, for several minutes, before they got on the boat.

* All the other disciples could have experienced the same thing, had they believed the notion, "If Jesus can do it, I can do it, as long as I am with Him".
