GOD IS TRUSTWORTHY
I remember a song “You can depend on God.” People who know me know that I cannot sing. Nevertheless, those words are true. Some songs that we hear are far from the truth, yet this one song speaks values about our God. You can trust Him because He is reliable and dependable. You can trust what He promises. We need to put our faith and trust in Him and watch God work. A portion of scripture in Matthew 14:29, serves as our reference text today.
“Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus.”
In this passage, impulsive Peter is taught to have faith. Jesus is walking on the sea. The disciples are troubled when the winds and the waves are blowing. They did not recognize the Lord at first, but the Master tells them to have no fear. Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” Peter saw the wind and waves and was afraid. However, when he trusted the Lord, he was able to walk on water. He could trust the Lord. It is amazing what happens when we trust the One who is trustworthy. My prayer today is that you have faith and trust in God and that you will follow His every command. You can count on Him. When all else fails, know that God never fails. May you be strengthened by the knowledge and faith, as the songwriter wrote, “You can count on Him.”
Matthew 14:29 (NLT)
