being in we take our eyes off Jesus and focus on the dangers around and begin to sink need to like Peter that apart from Christs strength and power we can do and that when we take our eyes off we sink In these we must recall our being buried with Him into death in order just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the may live i Romans 1 i We are to keep our eyes on the reality of

trials and temptations He works all things for the good of His people according to His not Like we are to believe His not based on evidence but trusting His which are as sure as His Word which called everything into existence from nothing And whats so assuring in all this is that He will grasp our hands even though we have so little Like the when the storm is we again gather to worship Him and praise Him for His many the life now lived in His presence of Word and Sacrament the life to come in His presence forever when His Word will be writ ten on our hearts so that we will not need our
