A daily dose of God’s touch in a minute…
Peter was amazed looking at Jesus walking on water, Peter loved that stunt, why else would he want to ask the Lord if he could try it as well?
“Come,” He(Jesus) said.
Mathew 14: 29 (NIV)
Walking on water stuff sounded fun. ‘Eaaasyy’ Peter would have triumphed but only for a while because suddenly fear gripped as he began to sink, could have been the heavy wind but all peter knew was he was sinking despite knowing Jesus is around .
The way Jesus managed had seemed so easy with no much hassle but Peter had failed ‘what’s missing in me?’ Peter must have wondered as he cried with a fear filled voice “Lord, save me!”
Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” He said, “why did you doubt?”
Mathew 14:31 (NIV)
There it was! Jesus had figured what it was that was missing in Peter to walk that walk.
And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
Mathew 14: 32,33 (NIV)
Whether rough waters or wind; in sinking times only the Lord can figure out what ‘s missing in us to handle that issue that grips us with anxiety and fear .
Better still; He is completely able to deal with that issue on the whole, all we do is cry out ‘Lord save me”
