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.

Your ability is the miracle

“And the Lord said to Moses, why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.” -Exodus 14:15-16

“Moses, the rod! The rod! I can almost image the Lord screaming to Moses “the miracle is in your hand, why are you stuck?”

How many of us been in a situation like that waiting for a miracle or even a breakthrough and we wait and wait and the Lord is waiting on us to just walk. Moses, why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.

Our ability is enough in God’s hand. Moses’ rod was his ability. Let’s find out where the rod came from. In Exodus chapter 3 the Lord appear to Moses while he was tending the flock ( sheep ) of Jethro ( Moses’ father in law ). He was a shepherd. A shepherd is a person who leads. When the Lord told Moses “The rod that’s in your hand.” He was saying; “Moses the ability what you learned over the years. You are a shepherd, I got you Moses, believe me.” Some time the Lord want to stretch us to see how much we can take. When you feel like the Lord is stretching you is because he want the blessing to fit.

Today the Lord is telling us our ability. Is what I’m going to use.

The Lord won’t move in our life in a way we don’t understand. “Peter the net that you’re throwing in well now throw it to the right and you will see.”

Your ability is enough. Now go on, achieve greatness for the Lord in Jesus mighty name.

The Jesus of now

Have you ever placed something in a locker? It’s usually something very important and valuable; Right? I remember when I was in middle school putting there only the stuff I didn’t want the other students to touch. I wanted to keep it away from them. I was the only one that had access to it, only I knew what was inside. If they wanted to know what I had inside they had to come with me and see.

I want to be careful here, listen closely to what the Spirit is saying “come with me so I can show you what I have for you, all you have to do is follow me” – Holy Spirit 

I want you to pray with me before starting: “Holy Spirit ( Jesus) please come into my life show me what you have for me, reveal who I am in you and please help me glorify Christ in the name of Jesus” 

I don’t only come for the ministry I want to be a part of your daily life. Do you think I only belong in the church? Do you think I’m only here for the apostle, pastor, prophet, teacher, and the evangelist? I’m here for everyone who seeks me. More than anything I want to help you discover your PURPOSE…

God put a great gift in all of us. Why do some people live their dream lives and others don’t. Is it because God loves them more? The answer is simply no, it’s because some find their gift and others don’t. But the bible explains this in Exodus.

Our life is not in front us it’s within us, I hope you can find it. I knew you could do it, you are great!!!!

The Holy Spirit is the light within, he will help you discover who you really are. My next post will be sharing the revelation He gave me to transform my life into a greater me. I didn’t know I had it in me.
