Water Miracles (7)

Our Bible Reading today is probably a familiar story to you. Most Christians know about Jesus walking on the water to Peter.
Peter said to Jesus in verse 28, “Lord, if it is really you, tell me to come to you on the water.” Jesus told Peter to come to Him. Peter got out of the boat and started walking to Jesus. But when Peter noticed the wind and the waves, he started sinking. Jesus reached out and took Peter’s hand. In verse 31, Jesus said to Peter, “Your faith is small. Why did you doubt?”
Often we criticize Peter for his lack of faith. It is true that when Peter took his focus off of Jesus, he began to worry and to sink. But I think Peter had more faith than I have! I am not sure I would have stepped out onto the water like Peter did. Every day I need to trust Jesus. I need to stop worrying and depend on Jesus to help me. Like Peter, my faith is small. But each time I focus on Jesus instead of my troubles, my faith grows.
Ask God to help you depend on Him today.
