Today we read about Matthew’s account of Jesus walking on the water. What stood out to me was how much faith Peter had in order to step out and join Jesus and then how quickly he loses faith and starts to sink. Matthew 14:28-31, 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” We are just like Peter. We have moments of faith where we feel we can move mountains and other moments when even the simplest requests seem impossible. For God, nothing is impossible if we just have faith.
