This morning in my devotions I decided to look at my Bible Gateway app to find this clip from the movie Son Of God where Jesus walks on water. I don't know if I am just extra emotional today but after this scene I was in tears. I can clearly remember so many times where I heard God ask me the same words He asked Peter, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
If you remember, Peter asked Jesus that if it was really Him to ask him to come to Him. So Jesus said, "Come." Peter boldly walked out, keeping his eyes fixed on Jesus the whole time. He stepped out of the boat and onto the raging waters as the storm continued around him. He was walking on water! Then, he looked around and lost focus. Instantly he began to sink and then cried out to Jesus. Jesus then instantly reached out to grab him.
Faith vs. Fear. Peter initially stepped out in faith but was then re-directed by fear. Take 3 minutes to watch this clip. It's not exact to the Bible so I would encourage you to open your Bible to Matthew 14:22-33. Walking on water is not logical. It doesn't make sense in the natural; but this is where we can't let faith be run by our mind. We must be obedient to God, knowing that He has it all under control.
