Step Out in Faith!
One of my favorite stories in the bible is when the disciples were out on the boat on the Sea of Galilee and Jesus appears. (Matthew 14:22-33) Peter calls out:
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” Jesus says come — and suddenly Peter takes that leap of faith and begins to walk on the water.
I was there on the Sea of Galilee in Israel not too long ago — and I love this picture! Wow, how the bible comes to life!
I remember waking up and doing my devotions in the morning on the balcony which overlooked the Sea and I imagined what it must have been like that night as Peter walked on water. I get excited just thinking about it. He was doing the impossible — all because he had his eyes fixed on Jesus!
But suddenly when the waves started crashing, Peter took his eyes off of Jesus and he started sinking. The fear, the doubt creeping in. But guess what, Jesus still reached out and grabbed him and didn’t let him fall.
So what leap of faith do you need to take today?
Maybe God has been asking you to do something.
It may be out of your comfort zone. It may feel uncomfortable — but know this. If God is calling you to do something — He WILL carry you!
Maybe you’ve tried before and it didn’t work out the first time. Remember, just as Jesus picked up Peter — He will pick you up too!
Don’t let that doubt and fear creep in. Keep your eyes on Jesus — and WATCH OUT!
You will be able to do the impossible — all because of Jesus!
Remember this picture of the Sea of Galilee and take that STEP in Faith!
You can do it!!!
Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.”
