You are Invited

Peter was walking on the water, but began to sink:

Immediately, Jesus reached out His hand and caught him:  ‘You of little faith,’ He said, ‘why did you doubt?’  Matthew 14:31

Today you are invited to consider where you are doubting God.  Where is God asking you to get out of the boat and walk on water?  What is so big in your life that you are doubtful God can deal with it?  What makes you doubt?  How can God help you so that you can trust Him, even in this?  Speak to Him about what lies ahead of you – or what you are dealing with right now.  Tell Him your doubts and fears.  Ask Him for His reassurance.  Then go through today with your eyes fixed firmly on Him, no matter the strength of the wind or the size of the waves.  At the end of the day, look back.  How did you manage in the storm, with Jesus just ahead of you?

May God bless you with a sense of His guidance today as you deal with the storms in your life and you walk on the waves.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
