“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….”(v.28-28)
This is one of my most favorite stories. And one I feel l can relate to. I always want to be the Peter who trust Jesus so much he actually walks on water. I mean who doesn’t?!
But sometimes I know I’m the peter that doubts. The one that starts walking on the water but the minute the wind blows you lose your faith. Honestly, don’t we all have these moments? Not that it’s one of our most proud moments…but there’s times in our lives that we are overwhelmed, we have everything going wrong, and we just want to give up and we lose our faith. But you know what? That’s when we say Lord, help me have faith. Remind me of your goodness. You call out to the Lord just like in Mark 9 when the boys father proclaims “Lord I believe, but help my unbelief” (v24) Because that is when the Lord comes in and shows Himself to you, when you are weak He is strong. He wants you to call out to Him. He will be there to catch you and lift you up.
Right now I’m in a season of truly trusting the Lord. Trusting Him to completely provide for me. I know He can, and trusting that He will. I’m trusting that when (because even Though I hate to admit it, I know it’s a when not a if) I doubt, He will be right there when I call out to Him to pick me up and show me He has me. That He is the ultimate provider and what He has called me to, He will provide a way.
Asking you to pray with me in this time of trusting our Father to provide.
