    • John 6:15: Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make Him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by Himself.”
    • We are guided by His plans (v.45).
      • Charles Spurgeon: “their sailing was not merely under his sanction, but by his express command. They were in the right place and yet they met with a terrible storm.”
    • We are encouraged by His prayers (v.46).
      • Hebrews 7:25: “Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
    • We are blessed by His power (vv.47-50).
