Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
…even on water. That’s right. He will make your paths straight…even on water! Just ask Peter. Read the account in Matthew 14:23-33
That’s a Gospel account about trust. When Jesus says, “Come.” Will you? You can still be saved staying in the boat, many disciples stayed in the boat. Jesus still loved them. Jesus still died for them. Jesus still rose for them. But, Peter got the experience of a lifetime because he trusted!
Peter lived the abundant life by trusting Jesus. Don’t miss out on that kind of exciting LIVING if Jesus is calling you out of the boat! Where is God asking you to follow Him today? Does the water look rough? Does the ground look rocky? Do the brambles look thick, sharp, and impassible? Don’t try on your own. Listen to Jesus, and step forward when He says, “Come.” He’ll direct your path!
