DAILY VERSE
Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
Matthew 14:31
 
DEVOTION
Do you consider yourself to be “experienced” at life? Do you consider yourself to be faithful? Caught in a raging storm, the disciples (some who were seasoned fisherman) were terrified. Adding to their fear, Jesus walks out on the water. Peter boldly asks Jesus to invite him out onto the water, but his faith waivers and he starts to sink. Storms in life may rise up, and they can be pretty scary. Christ invites us to have faith in Him to calm the storm and to give us the strength to weather it.

    Peter is always known for having little faith and sinking but I think he had the most faith out of all of them because he was at least willing to step out of the boat and onto the water….had he not let his flesh (fear) rise up so quickly he wouldn’t have sunk but at least he trusted Jesus enough to step out 🙂
