We are never beyond the reach of His care!

(J. C. Ryle, "The Gospel of Mark" 1857)

"Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid." Mark 6:50

Mark how our Lord sees the troubles of His
believing people, and in due time will help them.

We read that when "the ship was in the midst
of the sea, and He was alone on the land," He
"saw His disciples toiling in rowing," came to
them walking on the sea; cheered them with the
gracious words, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be
afraid," and changed the storm into a calm.

There are thoughts of comfort here for all true
believers. Wherever they may be, or whatever
their circumstances, the Lord Jesus sees them!

Alone, or in company;
in sickness or in health;
by sea or by land;
in perils in the city;
in perils in the wilderness
the same eye which saw the disciples
tossed on the lake, is ever looking at us!

We are never beyond the reach of His care!

Our way is never hidden from Him!

He knows the path that we take, and is still
able to help. He may not come to our aid at
the time we like best, but He will never allow
us utterly to fail.

He who walked upon the water never changes!

He will always come at the right time to uphold
His people. Though He tarry, let us wait patiently.

Jesus sees us, and will not forsake us.

"Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid." Mark 6:50
