Today I will focus on Christ and not on my doubts. Peter lost focus, allowing his survival instinct to override faith. We need the superhuman instinct given only by the Holy Spirit to keep our eyes on Christ and walk through the storms of life. Regardless, Christ will extend His saving hand. And, once we grasp His hand, we will walk together through the storm to safety.
Immediately Jesus reached for Peter and caught him. Jesus: O you of little faith. Why did you doubt and dance back and forth between following Me and heeding fear?
Today I will focus straight ahead as I go to God’s altar.
