“Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. ‘
Jesus was frustrated by Peter’s lack of faith. It’s interesting though, that Peter’s reaction was to reach for the hand of Jesus. “Lord! Save me!” he cried.  These are not the words of someone who doubts the source of their help–this is the instinctive cry of someone who knows exactly where to turn when the going gets rough!
The problem for Peter is that he took his eyes off of what Jesus was already presently doing. Peter was already walking on the water! Jesus was already presently in the process of performing a miracle in his life.  Jesus’ desire was for Peter to keep his eyes on Him, and see what he was already doing. 
God is at work in my life, and in the world around me. I need to trust Him, and trust that He is actively working on my behalf at all times. There are times that the waves will be crashing around me, and His desire is that I would simply keep walking with him. Not running to Him in a panic, but simply putting one foot in front of the other as we walk among the waves together.
This week, I need to just keep walking with the Savior.
Thank you that you are here with me, actively working on my behalf. Thank you that You are with me through every storm, and every season. Thank You for being the wave-walker, and for being my shepherd, my guide, my healer, my provider, my Lord, and my God.
