Today I looked in my notebook that holds my brains on hard copy for anything I need to list or remember, and found a note I had written to myself. I desperately needed to be reminded of these things I wrote after reading Matthew 14:24-36.
It's Peter's initial question about whether or not it was the Christ who came upon them on the Sea of Galilee that led him to ask Jesus to prove Himself. Once Jesus invited him onto the waters, the winds were blowing and Peter became afraid. He was overcome by doubt in Christ's ability to save him from natural forces. The chain of events that led to Peter sinking were brought about by seeds of doubt. You're no different!
If you question who God is, then do not expect Him to prove himself through easy circumstance. That's foolishness! Life will always bring storms of one kind or another. You will face times of adversity for the rest of your stay here on this Earth. The question is this, Will you fear when you see the natural course of sin's impact? Will you trust that the Lord is strong enough to handle even the roughest of elements?
Do not doubt!!!!! Do not!!!!
I need to write these things down more, so I can surprise myself after I forget what I've done. Wait a minute, is this a good thing, or a bad thing?
