Walk on Water.

A family friend just called and I thought this was a timely word for all of us who are struggling.

You know who you are. Limping along, wondering along, inching along.

Jesus saw Peter as he was.
Peter saw Jesus as He was.

Peter hopped out of the boat and walked on water- eyes on Jesus.

Jesus ensured the impossible happened for Peter, so long as Peter looked at Him.

You might be called to impossible- like we are.

Impossible to keep faith when everyone around you says it can’t and won’t happen.

Impossible to hurdle obstacles, because the people involved won’t change.

Impossible to endure, because your health or stamina don’t allow you.

Impossible to hope, because you’ve been beaten down too many times.

Impossible to pray, because you have nothing in you that even believes God is real.

But I wonder this: if you are called to be in a boat in the storm, and you see Hope walking towards you, could you leap out of your doubts, fears and trials and let it all go into Jesus’s hands?

It’s not you that has to walk on the water.

It’s Him who has to hold you up and do the impossible.

Maybe today is reminder to just get on your knees and surrender those people, those circumstances, those doubts to Jesus, who will keep you walking through the storm, filled with faith, doing the impossible- a journey with God when others are watching on the sidelines.

Psalm 119:1-2

You’re blessed when you stay on course,
walking steadily on the road revealed by God.
You’re blessed when you follow his directions,
doing your best to find him.

  1. Thank-you Gen for these encouraging words. Your words remind me of one of my favourite hyms which reminds us that when we “turn our eyes upon Jesus the things of this world grow strangely dim in the Light of His Glory and Grace” I can’t imagine weathering a storm without the Lord beside me.
