Hello, friend! Are you afraid of anything? The dark, telling somebody about Jesus, asking your teacher or momma a question? I get afraid sometimes, too! Let's look at water for a minute... you might be thinking what does water have to do with being afraid, right? Well, hold that thought in your mind.
Water? What is it? It is actually a very simple substance that is found in most places on planet earth. It is 3 atoms combined to form a molecule... 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom, or H20. Those simple molecules make up water. Water has three different forms... Liquid, solid, and gas. Liquid moves a whole lot, especially when it is blown around or gets stirred up. People don't normally walk on top of water because they would sink. In Matthew 14 it tells of Jesus WALKING ON WATER! Wait, what? That is impossible, right? Nope, Jesus is the Son of God! HE CREATED WATER! He most certainly walked on water and even one of His disciples, Peter tried to walk on water with Him.
So, what happened when Peter tried to walk on water? You got it! He started to sink. Why? because of the physical properties of water? Nope! Because He doubted the SON OF GOD! Was Jesus mean to Peter? No way, He helped him up and was kind to him. Peter was the only disciple that got out of the boat!!! He didn't do it perfectly, but he did it!
Jesus doesn't expect us to be perfect, but He does want us to trust Him enough to try. He will help us if we go to Him. In Peter's weakness Jesus was strong. In your weakness, Jesus will be strong, too. Just trust Him enough to step out in faith and try. Hope you watch and are encouraged to be courageous! Faith is simple like water, and it gives life just the same. Have faith in Jesus! He is our greatest reward!
