Step Out of the Boat
Why do you think Peter wanted to get out of the boat? Why did he all of the sudden think he could walk on water when Jesus called him? Well, you might say, "Joel, it's because he saw Jesus open the blind eyes and cleanse the lepers." Yes, that's true. But the other disciples in the boat saw the same things. Why didn't they want to get out? I believe it was because Peter understood that it was his time. He stirred up his faith. He believed at that moment that he could do what God placed in his heart. Jesus said, "Peter, do you want to get out of that boat?" He said, "Yes, I do." Jesus replied, "Well, come on out." Notice that Jesus didn't say, "Peter, stay in that boat. Don't you know I'm the Son of God?" No. He said, "Peter, I like your attitude of faith. I like the fact that you believe you can do great things."
I encourage you today to have that same kind of boldness. Start believing that your time is here! All the dreams that you've buried, those desires that you thought would never work out, it's time to start believing again. It's your time, and it's time to step out of the boat!
|A Prayer for Today|
|"Dear Father, today I choose to believe Your Word. I believe You are faithful to complete the good work You've started in my life. I choose to follow Your voice and step out of the boat. Thank You for bringing to pass the dreams in my heart in Jesus' name. Amen."|
