Use Your Gifts to Change the World Wednesday – Keep the Faith

“God can restore what is broken and change it into something amazing.  All you need is faith.”  Joel 2:25

Happy Wednesday!  We have another opportunity to change the world.  This week start by pulling faith out of your toolbox.

Today, I have been thinking about how Jesus taught Peter about faith.  According to Matthew 14:23-33, Peter and the disciples were in a boat when a bad storm was upon them.  Jesus was praying on the mountain and the disciples boat was being tossed to and fro in the storm.  So, Jesus went to them walking on the water and they were afraid.  They thought Jesus was a ghost.  Jesus told them not be afraid, but Peter said “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you to the water.”  So, Jesus told Peter to come to him and Peter walked to Jesus on the water.  Then, he looked down and became afraid.  At that moment, Peter began to sink.  Jesus said “O ye of little faith, why did you doubt?”

You see when we keep our eyes on Jesus and what he promises, we will have victory.  Conversely, when we worry about worldly problems, like Peter, we will sink.

So as you go through your day using your gifts and changing the world, have faith and Christ will never let you down.  God bless you.
