“And when He had sent the multitudes away,
He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray.” Matthew 14:23 NKJV
Mount Arbel is believed to be the location where Jesus would have gone to pray for it is walking distance from the Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee, and its vantage point of more than 1000 feet over-looking the Lake.
“Now when evening came,
The boat was in the middle of the sea;
And He was alone on the land.” Mark 6:47 NKJV
“Then He saw them straining at rowing,
For the wind was against them.” Mark 6:48 NKJV
“Now about the fourth watch of the night,
He came to them…” Mark 6:49 NKJV
Right when we think no one cares, all hope is lost,
“He came to them, walking on the sea…” Mark 6:49 NKJV
Jesus prays for us.
Sees us in our “rowing” state of mind;
And when the “winds” are blowing hard against us,
Jesus – right on time.
“…since He always lives to make intercession for (us).” Hebrews 7:25 NKJV
