How you can rise above the chaos of life
August 30, 2012
And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.
For a good part of my life, I lived near the ocean. And I’m grateful I was able to live near the water because I can better appreciate some stories in the Bible, like Jesus calling out to Peter to walk on water.
Now if you’ve ever seen an ocean or a sea when it’s very windy, you know what I’m talking about. It’s not a place where you want to be, especially on a small, wooden fishing boat! But Jesus came to His disciples at just the right moment, when the wind was at its worst and stepping out looked like certain death.
But it was then that Jesus called to Peter—when things looked the most ominous. And Peter, stepping out in faith, walked on the water with Jesus, rising above the chaos and fixing his eyes on the Lord!
God always comes through at just the right moment. At the deepest crisis of your life, that’s when He is perhaps more real to you than at any other time. I’ve seen it personally, and I know it Scripturally. So whatever your windy sea is today, you can step out in faith and rise above it by fixing your eyes on Jesus Christ!
RISE ABOVE THE CHAOS OF LIFE BY STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND FIXING YOUR EYES ON JESUS CHRIST!
