In Matthew 14 we find the story of Peter being brave  and impulsive and stepping out of the boat to walk on water toward Jesus.  As a young child, this story has always captivated and intrigued me.  Being someone who was fearful, the things that Peter did throughout the scriptures always made me want to be like him.  I wanted to be brave, bold, and a little impulsive, but I was always to afraid to do so.

I have shared before about the prophetic art ministry at our church, and the amazing talented people who participate using the gifts God has given.  Usually, the paintings are sold and spoken for before I even get a chance to  view them, much less purchase them.  However, a Sunday morning a few months ago, this painting made a powerful impact on me.

Join me in today’s video as I share about this painting and as we dive a little deeper into what getting out of our boats look like.  May you too realize that God is calling you, and all of us to step out of our boats.  Then join me this Thursday as I share more Lesson’s from the Boat.

As I have been pondering over this story for years, one of the things that I have realized is that the very presence of Jesus makes a person Brave.  Jesus’ presence made Peter brave.  The presence of Jesus through the Holy Spirit  makes me brave… Does it make you Brave too?

I feel God is saying to all of us, is that it’s time for us to get out of our comfort zone -and move forward!

It’s time to step out of the boat and it’s time for us to take the step of Faith – Jesus will meet us when we do,

Won’t you join me as we step out of our boats together.  He is calling us out to the deep things He has for us.
