Jesus immediately reached out His hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:31
It’s all those little lies pelting our thoughts that mess us up. What Peter KNEW was that he was with the guy who had just fed the five thousand. What he KNEW was that he was indeed walking on the water. But then fear overtook his knowing, and down he went.
This is why we have to take every thought captive to obey Christ. We are called believers, not tryers. We are not called to grit our teeth and step off the cliff of obedience in fear. There is to be a lightness of step and joy, because we know what is true.
I have lots of insightful saying tapping from my fingers from Joyce Meyers, as I head into a new day, refreshened from yesterday’s sick day, but surely with lots of strong winds and high waves to step across:
We will never enjoy life unless we make a quality decision to do so.
Wisdom is doing right now what you are going to be happy with later on.
Today can be effortless as you depend on God’s grace to do what He has called you to do.
He never called us to be busy. He called us to be fruitful.
Pop, pop, out the door I go.
Walk in the Truth, as I am in the Truth.
