Believe it or not, I don’t always obey God! Sometimes I don’t obey because He tells me to do something I don’t want to do. I don’t obey because I’m stubborn! I don’t obey because I’m selfish! I don’t obey because I’m scared and I have a lack of faith in Him! You might say, “I’ve been there and done that!”
I think about old Peter. He always had his foot in his mouth. The Bible says that Peter and the other disciples were in a boat and a storm came upon them. During that time Jesus came walking on the water and the disciples saw him and they were afraid. Jesus said, “Do not be afraid for it is I!”
Peter said, “If it’s you, bid me come to you!” Jesus said, “Come!” Peter stepped out of the boat and walked on the water. He began to sink because he took his eyes off the Lord. He cried out, “Save me!” Jesus reached down and pulled him up out of the water!
Peter has been slammed by many because of this. I don’t slam him, I admire for him. You see, out of the 12 he was the one that climbed out of the boat. The others sat there like a bunch of sissy’s and did nothing and I believe it’s because of fear. We don’t do things for God because the things he ask us to do scares us, which reveals our lack of faith in him! Today, get out of the boat and let God have his way in your life!
