Faith and Fear

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Faith and Fear

by Ken Ham

When Peter and other disciples were in the boat on the sea and battling strong waves and wind, Jesus came walking on the water toward them. Peter had great faith and asked if he could walk to Jesus on the water. Jesus said to come, so “So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus” (Matthew 14:29).

Then we read, “But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased” (Matthew 14:30–32).

In this time of great turmoil, uncertainty and uncharted waters, as Christians, we can say we have faith and trust the Lord, but it’s so easy to look at the “wind and waves” and start to sink in fear. We each need to contemplate how divided we are between faith and fear as the wind and waves rage around us. And remember, Jesus is Lord of both.

“And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”” (Matthew 14:32–33).

And don’t forget, Jesus had already shown he was Lord of both the wind and the waves when he stopped the storm: “And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:27).

Faith and fear–how divided are you?
