“But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid,” Matthew 14:22-27.
Throughout this message, the Spirit of The LORD showed me an ocean scene.
I was upon a beach and it was still dark outside. The LORD Himself was walking and was raising His hand above as if to calm the waves of the ocean. The waves would subside and would calm.
“Rest in Me,” says The LORD. “For with all of the troubles that beset many of My People, you must find time to rest.
There is found a time to rest amid the many storms of life. For I have come to give you rest.
I will calm the storms in your life. I speak to the waves and tell the ocean to calm. I told Peter to look to Me rather than to the waves.
You My People, need to enter into My Rest, for otherwise the waves of this life will overtake you.
The spirit of this world would always have you busy, rushing around doing this or that. But I would have you to slow down.
For there is no need to hurry doing this or that thing. The world will always tug at you.
But consider the ocean waves; consider the great expanse of them. For there is a stillness and a rhythm about them.
I stand upon the shoreline and I speak to the storms in your life, and I say to ‘be still.’
