To truly trust God, we have to believe Him. In Matthew chapter 14, verse 30, Peter had to trust that Jesus was who He said He was, and could do what He said He could do. Peter stepped out of the boat in faith and walked across the water. It wasn’t until fear and worry distracted him that he began to sink. When we get our eyes off God, it’s easy to allow fear to grip us. Our choices and actions really hinge on whether we truly believe God. Many people confess that they believe in Him. But, do their actions reflect they believe Him? Do we have the kind of faith that Peter had? Even when we are sinking, do we trust He will be there to rescue us from drowning? Let’s start living and praying with that kind of belief! We can start by saying: “I can’t, but you can God!” I can’t write these devotions, but You can God. “I can do everything through him who gives me strength,” (Philippians 4:13, NIV).
