The Lake of Gennesaret was a dangerous place. It was easy to be overwhelmed by the waves there; to be overcome by adversity.

Jesus boldly gives to dangerous places. What we fear, He confronts. May we be emboldened by the courage of Jesus.

O gracious god, may my heart be emboldened by the witness of Jesus. May I take heart when I see Jesus respond fearlessly to need, and may I do the same.
