" And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water. So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus."
It is easy to be so afraid of making a mistake that you never step out on faith.
Yes, you could fail. Yes, you could do it wrong. No, you may not get your intended result.
But, don't worry. God can take care of any mistake you make.
Just like Peter when he stepped out of the boat, Jesus will never let you down.
Notice that Peter did not hold a prayer meeting or go on a four-week fast. There is nothing wrong with those, but at this specific opportunity, Peter had to take action. And he did. He took faith-based action.
Sometimes you have to the dare of stepping out the boat- a place of safety and comfort- and into the unpredictable, daring waters of risk.
Here is some advice, as long as you seek God first, He rules your heart, and all of your motivations are to bring Him glory, do it!
It is better to take a risk being presumptuous rather than waste your life wondering "What if?".
Don't let fear rule you. Take a step of faith and get out of the boat!
