Many know the story of the Apostle Peter how he stepped out of the Ship and walked on Water. Many remember how he doubted and started to sink, when he saw the stormy waves surrounding him. Most don’t see that he stepped out in Faith when the others stayed in the ship. My point is that we need more Christians who are willing to step out in Faith, and lead others to the Lord Jesus Christ. I didn’t say Peter didn’t sink, but Jesus was right there to pull him out of the stormy water.
You will not be perfect and live a perfect life, you will probably fall and have doubt, but Jesus will be there with you every step of the way. Nothing happens in this life that God does not know about. Sometimes God allows things to happen to us or people we love so that we will come to him. Hebrews 13:5 says, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Matthew 14:22-31 says, “And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”
