Behold the disciples, in a boat alone in the midst of the Sea of Galilee. I ask the question...what were they doing there? The answer...Jesus had compelled the to get in the boat and to go across to the other side. Four miles out to sea in the midst of night, a vicious storm breaks out and the disciples hit troubled waters, the Lord Jesus is no where in sight! Yet Mark tells us that from His trysting place of prayer, "he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them" (Mk. 6:48). "And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea" (Mt. 14:25).
Dear soul, you may be in troubled waters, you may be pressed sore with no one at hand to help; you may even feel that the Lord Himself has cast you off. Be of good cheer, "Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep" (Ps. 121:4). Though it may be as late as the fourth watch, behold your redeemer cometh!!
