Let me tell you the two things it says. When Peter says “If it’s you, Lord, bid me come,” He bids all of us to come to Him, and then when we start making the trip and things get a little rough, “Oh my God! Lord, save me.” “Okay, it’s okay” and they walk back, and I’m sure they both walked back on the water. He bids each one of us, and when we get out there we think it’s going to be a cakewalk and then suddenly it’s a lot tougher than we thought and instead of doing the things we know, we begin to revert back to leaning on the arm of the flesh and take our eyes off Jesus. Stay focused on Him!
Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that ‘Underneath the everlasting strong arms,’ here you can be sure of one thing. He might have told you to come, and now you’re following and you can’t believe how hard thetrip is, but don’t worry. Underneath His everlasting arms, those strong arms, He’s there and He’s not going to let you fall. That’s part of our Faith. Faith says “You know what? I’m never going to know what it’s like until in the midst of it all, having done all, I stand on His promises.” God sees Faith like that and honors it. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus-that’s Faith.
