Matthew 14:30 (nirv)

But when Peter  saw the wind, he was afraid. He began to sink. He cried out, “Lord! Save me!”

Sometimes, at the beginning of something new or challenging, it’s easy to trust God. Even if it’s not easy, most of us can eventually work up the courage to do something if we believe that it’s in God’s plan for our lives.

But during the course of that journey, something will cause all of us to take our eyes off of Jesus and His plans. We’ll look around and realize that we’re not at all in control of our lives; even the illusion of control is gone. Suddenly, quitting your job to pursue your ministry might not have been a good idea. It probably wasn’t the right time to go back to school. You can have stayed and fought it out a little longer in that relationship, even though it was abusive. Starting the IVF treatments might not have been the right move.

Peter experiences this exact doubt in the middle of his walk on water. And the more afraid he becomes, the more he sinks. I know I can relate to that feeling, and I bet you can too.

But what Peter does next is a guide for all of us when we’re experiencing fear and doubt – he cries out to Jesus. In those few moments that Peter realizes he has no control, he can’t save himself, and he’s drowning, a million thoughts must have been running through his head. But then, he remembers Jesus, who’s standing right there. He replays the conversation from just moments earlier: Jesus said, “Come, Peter” (Matthew 14:29). He recognizes that Jesus wouldn’t bring him to a situation and abandon him there. He grasps on to the only thing he can control; his trust in the Lord.

For many of us, including Peter, our faith is shaky at best. Our trust changes from moment to moment. I personally go through extreme highs and lows in my own faith journey. In a matter of seconds, I can go from trust to a full blown panic attack.

In those moments, the only thing I can do is refocus on Who’s in control, and cry out to Him. Jesus doesn’t promise us an easy journey. He doesn’t even promise that He’ll immediately remove our suffering. But He does promise that He’ll never leave us. So, when you find yourself panicking in the middle of the ocean, try to remember that you didn’t get there on your own. Shift your focus to the One who’s been beside you all along.

What causes you to take your eyes off of Jesus and become afraid? What are some ways you can remind yourself to refocus your attention back to Jesus?

For peace and comfort that surpasses your circumstances.
