Matthew 14:28-29 ” Lord, if it’s You, Peter replied, tell me to come to You on the water. Come, He said.”

Peter stepped out of the boat even though he couldn’t see the way ahead or even start to understand exactly what Jesus was saying or asking him to do. In the book “My Utmost For His Highest” author Oswald Chambers puts it this way, “Just because I don’t understand what Jesus Christ says, I have no right to determine that He must be mistaken in what He says.” Countless times throughout our Christian life Christ will say, “Come.”, but the way will appear scary, the path ahead deeply shrouded, and the directive itself confusing…and our rational intellect will want to pause. But faith isn’t built and based on intellectual understanding – rather, faith is deliberate commitment and intentional obedience to trust God and His promises. Isaiah 7:9 warns us about wavering and indecisive faith when it says, “If you aren’t firm in faith, you’ll not be firm at all.” Or as another Translation puts it, “If you don’t stand firm in your faith, you’ll not stand at all.”
