Peter.

Peter walked on the water. Jesus is walking, he invites Peter along, and Peter takes that step of faith that no one else does.

He sees the wind and becomes afraid, he starts to fall.

Isn’t it interesting that Peter called out, “Jesus! Save me!”, as he fell?

The very one he doubted for a second – doubting as the wind made him question the ability to be held up on that water as he defied the rules of nature we all live by – is who he naturally called for in the end. Jesus is still what He called out for without thinking.

So often we call out that He is the one we need – at the end of the line, when it’s life or death…we call for Him.

But seconds before, Peter didn’t trust that same God. He doubts Him, he falls, but in the more serious moment (Peter is now sinking, worried for life, actively NOT walking on water and much more at risk than he felt before) – Peter goes back to Him.

Peter knew all along who He trusted….but that wind was REAL.

 

We do believe, please help our unbelief!
