Reshaping it All - Day 51

Reshaping it All - Day 51

Posted by Darlene Schacht, Co-author of Reshaping it All

Matthew 14:22-33 illustrates power in what I like to refer to as “eye contact.” This is the story of Peter, one of the twelve disciples, who stepped onto the water with the best of intentions. Despite the storm that surrounded him, Peter was willing to take a walk of faith.

An interesting thing about this story is that Peter initiated this walk of faith—not the other way around.
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
~ Matthew 14:28, NIV.
Don't you just love that expression of faith? I do!

If you want a permanent change in your life, and you're willing to see what the power of God can do, then take that step of faith too. Like Peter, get your feet wet, and move forward. Trust.

Right about now insecurity is probably telling you that you can’t. Oh, I’ve had the same voice nagging me too. Any time I try to do it on my strength alone.

But there’s another voice that powers me to press on. The voice that speaks softly but surely through each storm I face.

“Come,” He says.

And I know it’s the voice of my Savior hoping that once again I’ll lift my eyes until they’re locked in place with His. Hoping that I’ll trust Him every step of the way.
