Jesus demonstrated the presence and power of God by performing miracles. He turned water into wine, healed the sick, calmed the storm, opened blind eyes, and raised the dead. While these beloved stories draw our attention to divine power, they also have something else in common: human desperation. Every time we see Jesus performing a miracle, we also get a glimpse into the gift of desperation, a gift that opens us to the dramatic power of God through our desperate need for him.
In this video Jessica unpacks two miracles on the water—when Jesus calmed the storm and when Peter walked on water—showing us that sometimes God calls out to the storm and other times He calls out to us: “Take heart. It is I. Do not be afraid.” And then there are times when He calls us out of the boat to deeper waters. But in every situation, we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we can trust Him.
