Proverbs 14:32-33 


Verse of the day:

They had rowed three or four miles when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the water toward the boat. They were terrified, but he called out to them, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here!’ (John 6:19-20)

We have all had them, days that we would call “one of THOSE days.” However, when you think about the life of Jesus, one of those days takes on a different meaning. For us, those days are filled with stress, schedule conflicts, fights, delays, etc. However, with Jesus, those days are the days when the miraculous happened.


Here in John 6 it is just another day of teaching and hanging out with Jesus. Yet it was One of Those Days. It was a day that Jesus was about to do two of the most talked about miracles. Jesus was about to bend the laws of nature and logic. Jesus was about to do the impossible, and he was going to do it twice in one day.


Can you imagine what it must have been like to see 5000 people eating from the lunch of a small boy? Can you imagine the conversations, the wonder, and the amazement of it all? The disciples would have entered those boats to cross over the sea with the afterglow of being with Jesus on one of those days. Then one of those days arose on the water. It was one of those days where a sudden storm would take them by surprise. It was one of those days when their guard was down and they were basking in victory, not realizing the day was not yet over. It was into one of those days that Jesus walks on water.


Are you about to have one of those days? Most of us go into our day hoping it is not one of those days. How about today you’re pray that it is one of those days? One of those days where Jesus walks in and does the miraculous – twice.
