Believing hurts

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”“Come,” he said.Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:28-33

What do we do when the doubt comes? It is normal when the doubt comes and can I tell you that the doubt is very important in the life of a believer. It seems odd, but in order for us to believe we need to doubt, if we don’t have doubt we will just know and that’s not call believing.

I want to break it down how it was revealed to me.

Let’s take a look at what peter said “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter was not sure that he was talking to Jesus so can we say that peter started talking to Jesus with a doubt? GO ON! Move on with what ever you think is not having faith, just believe. That’s how Peter started to grow in his faith by doing what was not certain.
Sometimes it’s going to hurt to believe. When Peter begin to sink I know he started asking questions. Is it worth it? You tell me is it worth it. Why you started to begin with.It’s okay if you are tired just don’t give up because I tell you what, this passage started with a doubt or a question but it ended with a statement.

As I write this I feel like the Lord is talking directly to me. Sometimes it’s just hard to just hold on but please do because you will see when you get on top of the mountain.

Let me tell you how the story ended now Peter knew that it was Jesus for sure, Jesus is now in the boat with him and he did something he probably never image like walking on water. Maybe you don’t want to walk on water or maybe you do, but what are the impossibles in your life.

Today is the day to say Lord Jesus I’m not sure but help walk the impossible walk of faith. You could do it I believe in you, you should too.

The Holy Spirit is as important

Let’s take a look at what Jesus said to his disciple about the third person of the Trinity. Yes I said a person.

I know it could be odd thinking of the Holy Spirit as a person when I was first introduce to the idea it was odd to me too but with time I change perspective. The way I see it now is very simple I mean we don’t see Jesus but when we pray we believe that He is there then why not talk to the One who taught Jesus. I’m not saying Jesus is not here He is in the person of the Holy Spirit. I have good news and that is that you don’t have to think like me. By all mean I’m not saying I’m right either… it’s just matter of believing.

How important is the Holy Spirit?

Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift He promised, as I told you before. John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 1:4-5

This is Jesus telling his disciple hey guys I know you have walked with me quiet some time now but you still need the One the Holy Spirit. Why would Jesus tell his disciple to wait. He knew the importance of walking in the power of the Holy Spirit. He also waited to receive the Holy Spirit.

Follow me real quick here when Jesus was baptized by John at the Jordan River that’s when the spirit came upon him.

After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and settling in him – Mat 3:16

But it didn’t just end there that’s was just the beginning,the beginning of Jesus ministry. Right after the Bible tell us that the spirit let Jesus into the wilderness. This is key being led by the spirit in everything that we do is a guarantee victory even if it don’t seem like it. Remember Peter when he ask to walk on water well he did but then he started to sink then he cried for Jesus’s help and they walk back together. This only happen to those who are led.

If you like read it you could find it on Mat 14:22-33

The Holy Spirit don’t only come for people in the ministry is for everyone.

He want to walk with you daily…

Welcome

How cool it would be if we would get help every step of our walk in life. Well we can. The Holy Spirit is there with us every step of the way to help us and guide us. Many ignore the fact that He is real, some people don’t even know that He is there.

“All I want is to help you” – Holy Spirit 

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; For if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you – John 16:7
