Wonderful, wonderful Peter! Thank you Peter for being so honest! I know so many of us have read this story many, many times but for some reason today it spoke to me in a new way. Peter began to sink when he got scared (which Jesus called doubt). And I already knew that, but I thought of my own life this time. When I've gotten afraid, when I've doubted in God and if He'd come through or if I began questioning if I had really heard from Him (or whatever), I sink and begin to drown in this life. And that isn't pretty. Then the problems will overwhelm me and I will fail.
If we just keep believing even when we see the wind and the chaos and the storms, we will stay walking on top of it all with Jesus.
This is probably not a new thing for you to think about, but maybe for some it will be a blessing. It is for me.
Thank you Jesus!
And one more thing I want to mention, Peter asked Jesus to do something specifically for him, and Jesus went along with it. I think maybe we have more power, more freedom with God than we know.
