OUR LITTLE FAITH

But Jesus spoke up: “It is I; do not be afraid.”  Then they were willing to take Him into the boat, and at once the boat reached the shore where they were heading. John 6:20-21

This is another grate passage in the bible, as the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea they were terrified thinking otherwise. How often do we fear unseen situation or the ones that present itself? We all have reason to fear but we should never delay in replacing our fear with faith. The implication was that Jesus would not come unless He was willingly received. Even walking on the Sea of Galilee, Jesus waited to be welcomed by His disciples. I don’t know what you are going through right now but something I know is that “God never said that the journey will be easy, but He did said that the arrival will be worthwhile”

When I am in the storm I think of two people in the bible Joseph and David. First, if the two young boys in their seventeen could survived all and end in throne, I should by His grace. I know as well that most time at the beginning of every act of faith, there is often a seed of fear. Some how I believe Jesus wants us to work hard; but He never wants us to work in futility.

Jesus came to bring supernatural help and comfort to His disciples. His presence gave them what they needed, even though He came in an unexpected way.

We know from Matthew 14:28-32 that after this Peter asked Jesus if he could come out and walk on the water and Peter did walk on the water – for short time.

Once Jesus rescued Peter, He spoke to Peter about his little faith. This little faith led to the doubt and distraction that made Peter sink under the wind and the waves.

Like a preacher rightly says "The eagle has no fear of adversity. We need to be like the eagle and have a fearless spirit of a conqueror!"

Remember Psalms 121 "The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand."
