“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!
How many of us can relate to this story we find in the book of Matthew? Maybe we haven’t walked on water literally but have you felt God has called you to do something that seems so impossible? Has fear, circumstances or doubt distracted you from realizing who you are walking towards?
As I think about Peter and how he was brave enough to GET OUT of the boat and take those first steps on the water, I admire his faith. He was the only one who took that risk and trusted God. Yes he did begin to sink when he looked around him and saw the wind, but HELLOOOOOOO he was walking on water! The Word says he WALKED ON WATER. He knew the moment he began to sink that only God could save him, and He did.
We, my Isha friends, will be called to do the impossible or what may seem impossible to us, but with God all things are possible! (Matthew 19:26)
So…Dont’ look to the left, nor to the right, just walk to the light…
