Walking on water...or sinking?

Thanks and praise to our powerful Lord, our reality-bending God.

You walked on water, Lord Christ. Did the disciples need that affirmation of your divinity and supernatural power? 
(Matthew 14:22-32)

I once looked for a “scientific” explanation. Now, I accept it as fact...on faith. If I want your power in my life, why would I deny it?

Indeed, both reality and denial can be overwhelming.

In the squalls of my life I hear your words to Peter: Take courage! Don’t be afraid. Come. Why did you doubt?

…but like Peter I find myself sinking. Faith and trust can be surprisingly weak.

The storms are inevitable. Your presence, however, is certain. May I find it to be palpable.

“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24)
