Can you imagine sitting in a boat in the middle of a storm, trying desperately to row against the wind? You are doing your best to get to the other side of the lake, but you’re not getting anywhere. Then, all of a sudden, Jesus comes walking up toward the boat; literally walking on the water! This is exactly what happened to the disciples. At first, they flipped out, but Jesus said,” Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid”.
When you are trying to get somewhere and it seems like you’re stuck in the middle of all sorts of problems and nothing is going your way, you don’t have to flip out and be terrified. There is no problem or storm life can throw at you that Jesus can’t overcome. He will always show you a way through your storms.

How many times have you flipped through the channels and seen television shows about witchcraft or wizardry, or seen an advertisement trying to convince you to call a 1- 900 number that will put you in touch with your very own psychic? How often have you been surfing the Internet and found sites that make horoscopes, witchcraft, or other forms of the occult sound exciting and tempting?
We live in a world that is fascinated with the occult. Rather than turning to God or His word for answers, many people turn to ” mediums and familiar spirits,” that is, to psychics, astrologists, fortune – tellers, witches, channelers, and others who receives their power from Satan, not God. God’s Word calls this kind of stuff an abomination; and in this particular verse, God says that He is against( or the enemy of) those who even visit someone who practices this kind of evil. Don’t associate with such people or allow your curiosity to lead you into experimenting with the occult.Instead, turn to Jesus. He really is the only One who can give you answers; He’s the One who controls your future.
When you need answers, go to God. He will speak to you through His Word and by His Holy Spirit. Listen to what God says and follow where He leads. He will always make sure you are in the right place at the right time and your future is a winning one. In fact, the Bible says you’re more than a conqueror(Rom.8:37), and God is on your side.
