Like Peter on the water, we may see Jesus standing in front of us and long to join Him in what He is doing. A few steps and we start looking around us, losing focus and succumbing to fear as we realize the audacity of the step we’ve taken. What has God called you to do? Keep your eyes on Him, call out for help, and grasp His hand. Keep going!
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “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!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”—Matthew 14:28-31
Prayer: Jesus, keep my eyes on You as I step out in faith to join You as a servant leader today. In Your name I pray, amen.
