And when they had climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. The others sat there, awestruck. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed. [Matthew 14:32-33 TLB]

How do you react to something amazing that you cannot understand?
I have never seen anyone walk on water but I have been awestruck at times.
Really, it is crazy to think that there is an explanation for everything that happens.

I think that it is interesting to note that, before this, these guys had seen miracles.
They had seen miracles of healing, provision and deliverance.
Yet there was something different about seeing their rabbi walkin on water.

Perhaps these disciples needed this to shake them out of familiarity?
For months they saw miracles every day and they had become accustomed to them.
When they saw Jesus walking towards them, on water, they had a reset.

I have had also had resets in my life - things that have caused me to be in awe.
With each reset I joined these disciples in worshiping Messiah Jesus.
I love how God surprises us in life with events that leave us awestruck.

Lord Jesus. I once again affirm that You really are the Son of God!
