Just Dwelling on the Facts

When Jesus told His disciples to go to the other side of BoatStormthe lake, the hard facts the disciples focused on, once out on the water in the storm, were (Matt.14:22-27):  1.) it was night-dark  2.) they were a great distance from land  3.) the boat was beaten by waves  4.) the wind was against them—blowing the opposite direction they were supposed to go. We must beware of reaching a point that we are merely dwelling on just the facts. These may be the present facts but they are not the conclusion of the matter. In the Bible, present facts (threatening and impossible) and final conclusions always looked very different from one another.
