WORD FOCUS: NEVER BEYOND HIS REACH (2)
TEXT: Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him…”
The Bible says: ‘Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat… When he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”…, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”… Then those who were in the boat came and worshipped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God’ (Matthew 14:28-33). The main message for you in this story is-where to stare in a storm. We cannot choose whether or not storms come, but we can choose where we stare during a storm. When you are staring into the face of cancer, heart disease, or some other life-threatening situations, conflicts or afflictions, some of the first questions that come to mind are: ‘Who is the doctor? What is his experience? Is he able? Is he available?’ Yes, He is! Jesus’ CV reads: ‘God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ Note the word ‘all.’ He can meet all your needs.
So keep your eyes on Jesus and draw strength from Him. The One who ‘went about doing good and healing all’ is on your side today.
The Bible comforts us that many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers them of all. So beloved set or keep your eyes on Jesus and His Word are Yea and Amen in whatever situation you are in.
