Matthew 14 vs
29》 “He said, “Come!” Peter stepped down from the boat and walked on the waters to come to Jesus.30. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”》》WEB》
GRACIOUS greetings to you, Cherished one. There is a certain kind of fear known as the fear of the unknown. Many do not take positive actions because of this type of fear. However, others act in courage despite it. Many have heard of the difficulty that comes with marriages, yet are still marrying. Many have heard of how difficult certain economies are yet they still establish new businesses. Many are aware of the financial challenges of our time yet are still doing what they are supposed to do and are succeeding.
In our focal text, Peter walked on the waters by the word of Christ. But after seeing the strong winds, he feared and sank. It shows us that though He took action based on the word of Jesus Christ, he still had a certain fear in him. His sight at fear instead of looking to Jesus made him sink. But He called for Jesus and He saved him from sinking because he had made an attempt to act on the word. It’s better to try to act and fail than to try nothing because of fear. Beloved, Jesus walked in the midst of the Pharisees who hated Him and wanted to see Him dead; Yet He prevailed among them.
In the journey of life, there will always be something to fear but you must muster courage and act in spite of that fear. *How can you know it’s possible if you haven’t made attempts of reaching possibility?* People who always see impossibilities have not tried to make attempts that conquer impossibilities. Most people who dare to do something different come face to face with this type of fear. *However, the only way to conquer the fear of the unknown is to act against that fear in courage. Let that fear be afraid of you based on your courageous faith-based action. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Precious Father, I thank You for the courage to act in spite of the fear of the unknown. I refuse to be afraid of any kind of fear. You have not given me the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. The power of Your word makes me strong and courageous. I am a success and prevail over life’s challenges in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!

_Pray that God’s Spirit would always empower you to act courageously in spite of fear._
