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 theSea 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
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:1-2 NKJV

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
