Scripture: Matthew 14:27-29 (NIV)
“But Jesus immediately said to them: ‘Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.’ ‘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.”
Life often presents us with tumultuous storms and high waves of uncertainty. Just like Peter, we’re invited to step out of our comfort zones and trust in Jesus. When we fix our eyes on Him, we find the miraculous ability to walk above our circumstances. Remember, it is in the midst of challenges that our faith is tested and strengthened.
Dear Lord, help me to keep my eyes fixed on you, especially when the waters around me seem turbulent. Strengthen my faith and guide my steps. Amen.
