“I’ve never successfully done this before. All I can think about is all the times I went under. And, then there was that one time when I almost drowned. I stayed away from water for months after that incident. Does He not remember what happened to me? I’m guessing not, because if He did, He wouldn’t ask me to step out again. I mean, it didn’t work last time. What’s so different this time? He’s still telling me to keep my eyes on Him and walk by faith, but I need my sight to walk. I need to see where I’m going. I need to be alert, so I can catch myself when I  sink again…”

 

Facing “impossible” situations is not a walk in the park. It’s more like a walk on the water, especially if you’ve tried it before & failed repeatedly. Failure has a tendency to build your doubt, or shall I say build your faith in the impossibility.  And, after falling over and over again, you subconsciously prepare yourself for failure as somewhat of a defense mechanism. BUT, in order to successfully walk on water you have to get rid of all your preconceived notions, all your past experiences, and all your memories of failure so you can keep your eyes on Him. In Matthew 14, Peter didn’t begin to sink until he took his eyes off Jesus. He got distracted by the wind that felt like it was going to knock him over, and the waves that violently beat against his body as he took each step. In order to keep your eyes on Jesus, you have to walk by faith. Otherwise, you will be intimidated by what you can see with your sight and begin to sink. But, regardless of whether or not you stay above water or not, fear not, because Jesus (your lifeguard) is with you every step of the way and He won’t let you drown…So go on, keep walking on the water. If you keep your eyes on Jesus, you will make it to the other side. **G.I.G.**
