“Come,” Jesus said. So Peter got out of the boat. He walked on the water toward Jesus. But when Peter saw the wind, he was afraid. He began to sink. He cried out, “Lord! Save me!” Right away Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “Your faith is so small!” he said. “Why did you doubt me?”
Matthew 14:29-31 (NIrV)
Drown out fear and doubt through strong faith in Christ, He is able to calm the winds of fear, so reach out to Him in purposeful prayer.
The account of Peter walking on the water toward Jesus is a picture of doing with God’s help what you could never do on your own. It reminds me of one of my all time favorite books written by John Ortberg. The book is “If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat“. It speaks to issues of how we face fear and can experience the power of God as we trust Him to do things beyond what we could imagine. I Highly recommend this book!
