Being different is scary. Having faith is scary. Stepping out into the unknown is, you guessed it, scary. But like my quote today, regret is even worse.
Today I’m meditating on this passage from Matthew. Can you imagine what would have happened had Peter not made a life change and chose instead not to follow Jesus? To forfeit eternal life. The regret there would have been overwhelming. I love this verse in the bible. The humanness of Peter strikingly set against the power of Jesus. Peter experienced faith, the fear and the Saviour.
He said, So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him,
This is me cut out. I have amazing ideas on how I’m going to live my life. Sometimes I even take a step. Then doubt settles in and I start to sink.
All we have to do is have faith in God that He will provide.
