As long as Peter kept his eyes on Jesus, he was fine, but as soon as he began to focus on what was going on around him, he began to sink, but he cried out to Jesus, and Jesus helped him up.
We’re living in a time where us as believers of Christ, need to step out on faith and do the impossible, through Christ. Our focus is everything right now. Our focus determines whether we walk on water or if we sink. Right now, we have to get out on the water and walk. This means, we have to represent Christ and His glory like never before. We must give people hope like never before. We must glorify God like never before. It may look impossible right now. Things may be uncertain right now. It’s a lot going on, but God is nearby. All you have to do is focus on Him, and walk on water. Walk towards God, through these difficult times. Walk towards God, and not the distractions. God is bigger, greater, and more powerful than this world and anything or anyone in it! God is calling us to do what some would deem impossible during this time. When the majority’s quivering in fear, God is calling the body of believers to believe like never before, and to walk by faith and not by sight. Our responsibility is to spread hope, while the media spreads fear. God is calling us to trust Him, even when we can’t see a way out. Jesus is our way out. He is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Follow Him. Don’t worry about what people who think they hold the power are doing, remember, God is in control. Look to Him. The distractions are designed to take over your mind so that you can’t see God, but walk on water/step out on faith anyway! Listen to His voice. Don’t allow the winds and waves of life to beat up on you! We are God heirs with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Get out of the boat of comfort, of fear, of doubt, of stagnancy, and negativity! Glorify our God. Love our neighbor. Be an ambassador of hope! Take a bold stand in the Lord, then walk on water!
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
