May 9

“But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.”  John 6:20 (NIV)

When the disciples were in a boat on a very stormy lake, Jesus came walking on the water. Even though the disciples were terrified when they saw Jesus, they had reason to be because they didn’t know who He was. So what they really needed to know was that it was their Lord and that He was near to them. He knew they needed Him and He came to help them and to bring them through safely. So just hearing His words and knowing it was Jesus took care of all their fears. This is what we need to know too. We need to know that He is near us, and that He is aware of our needs today. When we are going through a dark hour, we need to hear him speak to us as He did to His disciples.
