Immanuel Baptist Church, Wagoner, OK

Rick Boyne

Message Point: We must keep our eyes on Jesus, no matter the circumstances.

Focus Passage: Matthew 14:25-31

I. THE LORD BROUGHT THEM THERE

II. JESUS PRAYED FOR HIS FOLLOWERS

III. THE LORD CAME TO HIS OWN

IV. JESUS HELPS US GROW THROUGH TRIALS

a. Here are four principles for water-walkers:

(1) Don’t listen to the people in the boat (nay-sayers)

(2) Don’t look at the waves (circumstances)

(3) Don’t look down at your feet (self)

(4) Keep your eyes on Jesus!

V. JESUS WILL EVENTUALLY BRING PEACE

a. Notice the progression of events here:

Jesus caught the sinking Peter•

They walked to the boat together•

Jesus climbed into their boat and with Him came the calm they were looking for•

Little wonder that they worshipped Him•

The next time you have on of those days, or weeks, or months, or years when the bottom seems to be dropping out, just remember to turn to this passage in Matthew 14 and it will hold you steady as you see there again these five amazing truths:

The Lord brought me here•

He is praying for me•

He will come to me•

He will help me to grow through this•

He will see me through•
