DAILY VERSE

But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”

Matthew 14:27


DEVOTION

When I was young one of our favorite summer activities was going to the high school pool to swim. It was opened to the public for a small fee. As kids, you’re always challenging each other. Here, the challenge was the 12-foot high dive. A flexible board that felt much like walking the plank. Even worse for your self esteem, turning around and chickening out.

In life we face these same tests of courage, but on a much greater scale. Will we take the challenge and come through triumphant, or will we slink back into the shallow end of the pool with our heads hung low. Jesus is there with His hand extended saying, “Take courage, I am with you.” Step out of the boat and take His hand!
