If you want to walk on water, you’ve got to get out of the boat

Matthew 14:22-33  This is the story of Jesus walking on the water.  The disciples were terrified and cried out in fear, “it’s a ghost!”  Jesus said, “Take courage! It is I.  Don’t be afraid.”  Peter told Jesus to tell him to come to him on the water so Jesus said come.  Peter got out of the boat and started walking on the water.  Then he saw a wave and got scared and began to sink and cried out, “Lord, save me!”  Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.  “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

At least Peter had the courage to get out of the boat. The other disciples didn’t.  If you want something, ALWAYS ask God!!  Always!  Then believe without doubting.  God is always going to answer our prayers.  His answers arn’t always going to make sense on our time, but everything is always for the good on Gods time.  Trust that God has the best plan for his children.  He came to heal, restore, make whole.

Just ask God, then jump in with faith and courage.  Go walk on that water. Imagine God in front of you and walk to him. 

Romans 8:28  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Another good friend of mine has just been diagnosed with cancer.  She’s gotten a lot of prayer and as a result has not been scared.  She’s had a real peace through what could’ve been one of the hardest times of her life.  The not knowing is the worse part, now she knows and she’s ready to go to battle in full force and win this fight.  She has God on her side and a very large support system.  God is going to show her love beyond belief through this time of battle.  We’ve already prayed for healing and we know God answers prayers to those who are faithful to him.
