Jesus went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake... Jesus said to them: "Take courage! I AM. Don't be afraid." (Matthew 14:23-27)
There He is - communing with His Father on high.
There are His people, buffeted by the waves.
What does He do? Simply pray for them? Give advice from a distance? No, He joins them.
He walks through the storm and treads on the abyss and does everything in His power to be with His beloved. Fighting through the powers of chaos, He declares His divine name - I AM. Here is the One who descends into His people's affliction to bring them out.
So take courage. Fear not. The I AM has come to bring us home.
