“Come,” He said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.”(Matt 14:29) NIV
Even If– despite of, supposing, in spite of, although
Peter decide that he would step out of the boat Even if he drowned, but to his surprise God allow him to do the impossible; Peter was able to walk on water.
We are terrified to take risk for one reason or the other, whether it is because we fear failing or being ridiculed, but like Peter we must not be afraid of what the other disciples think . Even if he drowned Peter was leaving that boat.
Beloved, Are you stuck in a boat of stagnation, a boat of mediocrity, a boat of rejection , a boat of loneliness, a boat of disappointment and intimidation because you are afraid to take a risk? Well. now is the time to make up your mind move out, step out, and come out. Even if you fail at your attempt do not remain in the boat.
Beloved, let us take the leap of faith and like Peter move towards Jesus, Even if we fail at lest we know we tried and we can still keep trying; If we change nothing, nothing will change.
“Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.”(Isaiah 50:7)
