It is I

Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid”

Matthew 14:27 (NIV)

The disciples were in a boat at the darkest hour of the night. They saw someone walking on the water toward them and were terrified. Back then people thought a ‘ghost of death’ came to them like this. Needless to say, the fellas were thinking it was over.

When you are in situations that frighten you, let Jesus say to you: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid”. Why did ‘it is I’ comfort them? They knew He could protect, comfort, and work all situations out for their good.


Heavenly Father, remind me of Your presence. Take care of me especially in those scary times. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
