I had a really awesome conversation with my brother this morning about experiencing all that God has in store for us in life. We talked about how sometimes you have to be like Peter in Matthew chapter 14 and just obey God and step out into the deep in order to really experience God’s true abundant life of Love, Grace and Mercy!
Many times we say we are praying for success in life or for things to change in our lives but it seems as if nothing is really happening; well have you ever thought about the fact that maybe nothing is happening because God is waiting on you to “take a step of faith”, to “step out of the boat”, or to “walk on the water” first then He will follow through with His promise of an “Answered Prayer” for you?
The Bible tells us in Psalms 37:4, “Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires.” God wants to please us! What Father doesn’t want His children to have the best? It’s just that sometimes we are so conditioned to think that all miracles come by osmosis, come in our own comfort zone or come without having to take a “step of faith”! Sometimes we don’t recognize when God is calling us out of the boat and to just trust that He will cease the storms and uphold us as we “Walk on the water”!
Take a look at your life today. Do you have unanswered prayers, or unfulfilled goals and dreams? If the answer is yes and time is ticking in your life, I admonish you today, examine yourself and see where God might have told you to “Step out of the boat”, “Take a step of faith”, “Walk on water”, and trust Him, it may be to move to another state, it may be to move to another country, it may be to forgive someone who has hurt you, and it may be as simple as reading a book you’ve been meaning to read, which may change your outlook on life or give you more wisdom to accomplish that goal or dream!
Whatever your “Walk on water” moment is, and most people know what theirs is, they are just too afraid to admit it or do it, be obedient to God and do it, and watch that answered prayer come to fruition, watch those goals and dreams manifest, and watch how the Grace of God begins to take over your life!!!
Forever In His Grace,
