    Moses said to Yahweh, "Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speakin...

    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13'14 WEB....

When The Wind Blows

  • He said, "Come!" Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and said to him, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?" Matthew 14:29'31 WEB.

    As Peter walked across the surface of the water, the wind suddenly began to blow stronger. Fear came over him, and he started to panic. Then the water beneath his feet began to soften, and he began to sink into the sea.

    A few minutes before, Peter had cheerfully walked across the top of the water. The other disciples had watched Peter and Jesus from the boat. Now he was sinking in panic, and the others were murmuring, "told you so..." Then Peter cried out: "Lord, save me!" And Jesus reached out and took hold of him.

    When they got back into the boat, Jesus asked Peter one question: "Why did you doubt?" Peter had stepped out in faith to go to the Lord Jesus, and everything was working just as it should. But of course, when on the edge of a major breakthrough, a life-changing event, the wind began to blow furiously in opposition. Peter's faith that he could do this wavered.

    Peter began to doubt the Lord told him to do this at all. He began to panic, and thoughts ran madly through his mind: "What was I thinking? This is crazy! What am I doing here? I can't do this! I am going to drown!" All these things rushed through Peter's mind and gained momentum. That is when Peter began to sink. Yet, even when his faith failed him, Jesus didn't let him drown.

    Fear is a spirit, and it will try and turn you back from what the Lord has for you. Fear is the guardian of the good stuff. You will have to get past it to get the treasure. Scripture tells us:

    "For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control" (2 Timothy 1:7 WEB).

    When you step out in faith and are on the edge of a major breakthrough, it seems like all hell will break loose against you. Yet, don't give up and give into panic. Only believe. God's plan for you hasn't changed. He is still calling you to come forth. God is always calling us into our future. If we could do it ourselves, then we wouldn't need Him.

    "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13). That includes the things that you are facing today.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You this day for allowing me to serve You. Please forgive me for being fearful and listening to the voice of the enemy. If You are for me, who can stand against me? How could I doubt You, the Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, the Maker of the stars? Please fill my life with Your presence, strengthen me, and let me see the world through Your eyes. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.' (John 5:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Essential thought for me today, Pastor Dion! God is always calling us into our future. If we could do it ourselves, then we wouldn't need Him. Lord, I need you. Thank you for Your well-timed help! Amen
