It’s when things are the roughest that we think He’s not with us, Jesus that is……That was the case of the Apostles….as well at 3 am when their boat was being tossed around…They knew FEAR….We know what Fear is….when we feel alone, when we yell out and there is no one to listen to us or rescue us. However, if we have an intimate relationship with the Lord, He is there to rescue us!
Peter was in that position. He was in FEAR, terrified, and recognized his friend, Jesus, who reached out to him and rescued him!
As God and Man Jesus reaches out to us when we are in Fear….but we have to have that intimate relationship with Him! Through Prayer, intimate conversation, He comes to us to relieve our Fear.
