A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .
Peter loved God with all his heart too–Jesus knew it, and the devil was ABOUT to find out–for one night, a “ghost” showed up on the lake. Scared? They were terrified, for they had NO idea the “ghost” was actually their Lord, the Son of God, walking on the water. (Sometimes when God shows up, He does it in STRANGE ways!)
Peter said, “Lord, if it is YOU, bid me to come on the water.” Now how in the world could Peter walk on the water to Jesus? But hold on, for when God shows up, He provides the miracle for you to get to Him, if need be, and He DID!
Peter steps one foot out of the boat, then the other–and WOW! He’s walking on water–then WHOA! He’s drowning in water! He got his eyes off the Lord, on the leaping waves and fear overwhelmed him. Jesus extends His hand, rescues the drowning disciple, and within one shake of a lamb’s tail, he’s walking on water again, this time with Jesus, back to the boat!
What a story Peter would have to tell his grandkids some day….Kids, let me tell you about the time when a “ghost”–I mean, when GOD – showed up!
Will God show up when we are trembling with fear, facing circumstances that would overwhelm and override us? You’d better believe it! He knows you’re afraid, He knows the enemy’s tactics to bring terror to your heart, and He is not about to forsake you. He holds out His hand, lifts you from the crashing waves, and YOU walk on water too, only because HE bids you come.
Believe it, receive it, and you will have a God-filled, choco-rich, sea-safe day!
Prayer: “Lord, I am in a raging storm and feel like I am about to drown. I cannot help myself. I reach out to take Your Hand and receive Your help right now, In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Scripture: Mark 6:48-51
