It’s Monday! The Word tells us to rejoice and be glad in it. This is a new day that God has given us. Let’s live it to the fullest.
The choice to follow Jesus-the choice to grow. We have to get out of the boat a little everyday. Here is a truth about walking in faith. The fear will never go away! Because each time we want to grow, it will involve going into uncharted waters. It will always involve new challenges. The decision to grow always involves a choice between risk and comfort. We like to be comfortable and we want to immerse ourselves in comfort. I am so guilty of this if I had to be honest.
Out of the 12 disciples only Peter was willing to get out of the boat. I want to encourage you this morning to exercise your faith daily. Ask God to challenge you and to grow you. I know that is a pretty bold prayer. Ask Him to give you opportunities to serve Him and other people. When opportunities come, you will have to make a decision. Do I let fear overcome me and stay in my comfort zone or do I let go of the side and make a decision to grow?
Make that decision today to grow in Christ! God bless!
