Getting to your place of victory......

Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?
— Matthew 14; 27 -31

When storms are hitting you from left and right, and your boat is on the verge of tipping, you can find yourself in a situation just as Peter did. Peter was in a place where he could see and hear from God, but what happens when life is hitting you and you can't hear or see NOTHING.?. Add the fact that for the most part, it's not that you doubt God or what HE can do, as a matter of fact your faith in Him is still in tact, your dilemma is more like, "but God, I don't have enough strength to walk on these rough currents."

BUT FOR GOD -there's other alternatives! What worked for Peter may not be the solution for you. 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
— Psalm 46:1

Ever-Present!, this is great to know that in the midst of troubled waters HE is here. Keep this in the back, top and front of your mind, heart and soul despite what your circumstance(s) look like. 

Even though I walk (ride, sail crawl, roll, float, stumble, moan and groan) through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
— Psalm 23:4

Today love, think of the times Thee Ever Present HELP has saved you in the valley, think of how HE has saved a loved one or friend and stand on the miracle of the past to remind you of the promise of the future. 

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
— John 16:33
