A LITTLE FAITH IS BETTER THAN NO FAITH
Matthew 14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
Insight and Highlight
Matthew 8:26 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
Jesus mildly rebuked Peter because Peter had expressed doubt about something he had said he would do.
He requested to walk on water and Christ obliged, but fear sank him.
When he had faith, he walked on water, when he had fear, he sank in the water.
The same is true of many of us today.
The quest to survive, challenges, the unexpected, around us are just like the boisterous wind around Peter.
Jesus spoke of Peter’s "little faith".
Just a little faith is enough to put life's challenges aside and focus on Christ.
Come to think of it, we put so much energy into solving life's challenges yet we wake up every day to find out they are still there!
Just as a little gaze of focus was enough for Peter to keep going, a slight loss of focus was big enough to sink him.
All Christ needs is a "little faith" from you. "......for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed
Call to Word action
The same things that divert our attention from Christ are still doing so.
These things keep us away from focusing on the One who will keep them away from diverting us.
The Christian clarion duty
We have a choice. You can choose to worry and sink or focus and be raised again.
Lord keep me focused. Endorse my little faith as strong enough to save me, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
