“And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’ Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, ‘You of little faith, why did you doubt?’” (Matthew 14: 29-31).
Just as walking on water is humanly impossible apart from Divine help, so is living the Christian life. It’s a supernatural act, accomplished only as we allow the Holy Spirit to play out the purposes of God in our life. Try it on your own determination and self-sufficiency and, like Peter, you soon find it to be a sinking proposition. Faith releases God’s power and opens the door to other possibilities.
