When angry waves seek to pull you under, cling to the one that will bless you with the ability to walk on water.
Of course, it would be Peter challenging Jesus. When the disciples thought Jesus was a ghost Peter calls out to Him, “If it is you, Jesus, tell me to come to you on the water.” Jesus says “come.”
Peter was doing quite well until he looked at the wind and waves. He immediately began to sink. When this blustery fisherman cried out for help, the hand of Jesus quickly
lifted him up, and they walked together through the wind, on top of the waves, to the boat. It was only then that the storm became calm.
Jesus had asked Peter a question on their walk back.
“You of little faith, Why did you doubt?”
God doesn’t want us to focus on the wind and the waves; He wants us to walk on water.
Just think, if we would believe, I mean honestly trust that Jesus is right here with us, would the wind and waves overcome us as they do? What would happen if our concentration was on Jesus and not on the tumultuous waves around us?
Don’t be afraid to let go of your doubt. Doubt holds you back instead of moving you forward.
The God who PARTED the sea, will also give you the ability to walk ON the sea.
If the focus is on what you think God hasn’t done, you limit His plans for what He wants to do. You define His plans.
Turn your eyes away from the heaviness of your load. Like Helen H. lemmel’s hymn of old says,
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
James 1:2-4 NIV
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
