“Then, when they had rowed three or four miles [and were near the center of the sea], they saw Jesus walking on the sea and approaching the boat; and they were [terribly] frightened.”JOHN 6:19 AMP
This verse reminds me of when Jesus was just a few miles away from Lazarus. Their routine walks would take days, so that distance was quite short. The sea that’s mentioned in this scripture is only 8 miles long in total and their boat was right in the middle. In life, when you’re in the midst of a situation that seems overwhelming and difficult Jesus is there to overcome it. He won’t wait for you to get to the shore to help. When you think that He’s so far and things are hard or unpleasant, that’s exactly when Jesus gets in your boat. Jesus, the giver of peace and calm is right here with you. You will make it to shore.
