Mid-Week Fill-Up

HUNGRY FOR THE WORD… MID-WEEK FILL-UP

When Jesus walked across the water, those in the boat recognized Him.

When Jesus walked across the water, those in the boat recognized Him. Peter said, “Lord, if it’s You, tell me to come to You on the water.”

“Come,” Jesus 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?” Here is where this scripture caught my attention. I heard a Bible teacher ask this question, “WHAT did Peter doubt?”

The study revealed that Peter did not doubt Jesus….because He was STILL standing on the water! Peter doubted himself.

Peter also gave his circumstances more power than they actually had over him, forgetting the Power of the One who had called him out. Peter’s failure was in his thoughts. His body didn’t fail. The storm was STILL raging. He didn’t have to do anything but focus his eyes on Jesus and walk.

When he began to sink, Peter cried out “save me!” Please notice….when did Jesus respond to his cry? Immediately.

Family, when God says, “Come,” we will most certainly find ourselves in tough, dangerous places. Let us keep our focus. Let us remember He is our Savior. He will ALWAYS save us.

Because He calls the weak to do GREAT things, we MUST be CONTINUALLY aware of our position in the Kingdom as powerfully-equipped (by our Father), Holy Spirit-bearing (gifted by our Father), fiercely LOVED (by our Father) Children of the Most High! NOT ONE of those traits are we capable of acquiring by our own means.

ALL gifts.
