I told myself, “Stop being scared.”
It worked for part of the day and then I returned to being scared.
I then asked, “How do I finally come up with the courage to step out on the water?”
I don’t know. Maybe you build up to it. Or do you just plunge ahead?
I suspect God for his part is waiting for us to use the faith already available.
“Why did you doubt?”
These three verses give us more than a hint of this truth.
Jeremiah 33: 3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
Ephesians 3: 20 Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.
1 Corinthians 2: 9 No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.
In my mind these three biblical references should be read and reread until they light up the darkness in our world.
Are you ready to step out?
Or are you still sitting in the safety of the boat?
