A little word of encouragement for you today.
If you have faith and trust in God, you can do anything.
Mark 10:27: "But looking at them, Jesus said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible." [NKJV]
In Matthew 14: 25-31 Peter tried to do something that Jesus did. Something out of the ordinary but that's okay because as children of God we have moved from natural to the supernatural. Peter walked on water. Yes he did! He walked on water as Jesus did. He was walking towards Jesus on the sea. Awesome, right!
Yes, awesome. But then, something happened. The wind became stronger and the storm increased, Peter got scared, started sinking and cried to Jesus for help. Jesus helped him but asked a question: "o ye of little faith, wherefore did you doubt?" Mathew 14:31 [NKJV]
Pause, does this mean Peter wouldn't have sunk if he didn't doubt? Yes! There is this saying that "cowards die 7 times before their death." It is fear, most times, that deprive people of certain things. Sometimes, in the midst of storms or unpleasant events, it is the fear/panic caused by what is happening that kills people and not the unpleasant event itself. Have faith, trust in God, relax, focus on your goal, focus on the solution and not the problem itself and erase fear completely. Reach for that goal, deal with fear, challenges, be bold, confident, trust Jesus and walk on that water. You will be fine.
Thanks for reading.
Have a lovely day.
