Keep Your Eyes Always on the LORD

“I keep my eyes always on the LORD,
with him at my right hand,
I will not be shaken”
– (Psalm 16:8)

“So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came towards Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’ Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him” (Matthew 14:29-31)

Strong wind….Fear….Shaking….Sinking….

Ever have those feelings?

Life can do that to us sometimes.

Thank God, life is not always that way. Thank God we have our good days and good seasons too!

But when life gets hard, when the storms hit….hmmm….life is unbearable.

But you see, we were never meant to bear the unbearableness of life alone. We will never make it alone. Peter walked on water!!! Just picture that. But he began sinking when he took his eyes off Jesus and focused on the storm. That’s what happens to us too, when we lose sight of Jesus.

That’s why the psalmist reminds us to keep our eyes on Jesus and we will not be shaken.

You are not alone. You are never alone. God is with you at your right hand. With God, you will not be shaken.
