Scripture for the Third Sunday in Lent 2013

47 When it was evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and He was alone on the land. 48 Seeing them straining at the oars, for the wind was against them, at about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea; and He intended to pass by them. 49 But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed that it was a ghost, and cried out; 50 for they all saw Him and were terrified. But immediately He spoke with them and said to them, “Take courage; it is I, do not be afraid.” 51 Then He got into the boat with them, and the wind stopped; and they were utterly astonished, 52 for they had not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but their heart was hardened.

Father, Jesus’ disciples saw Him feed thousands with only a few loaves of bread, Yet they still didn’t understand who He was. They were afraid when they saw Him walking on the water, and they were amazed when He calmed the storm. It’s easy for me to overlook Your miracles and not see Your Hand in the wonderful things that happen in my life, yet I know everything comes from You. Help me to recognize Your Hand in producing the miracles I see and to notice the miracles and be thankful for them. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
