Read: John 6:16-20
Study: In several places in John’s gospel, Jesus referred to himself with the Greek version of the divine Hebrew name YHWH, which meant something like “I am that I am”. One key instance came when his disciples were in a small boat caught in a ferocious wind and rainstorm lashing the Sea of Galilee. Jesus told them that, because he was the great “I AM,” they did not need to be afraid. In what parts of your life do you need Christ’s comforting, calming presence today? How confident are you that he can and will be with you?
Prayer: Lord Jesus, at times my fears distract me and hide you from me. Remind me that your love and salvation are always in reach, even when I feel as though I’m sinking. Amen.
