A SIMPLE ACT OF FAITH
READ MATTHEW 14:22-32
MEMORIES:

But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"

(Matthew 14:30)
When things are going well, it is easier to be happy and believe in God's goodness and care. The real test comes when our good fortune or happiness suddenly changes; when like a stormy sea, life seems to turn against us. All of us go through these experience: disappointment and disillusionment, the pain of loss or betrayal, the agony of illness and the vulnerability of old age. Any of these can plunge us into a state of anxiety and sink into doubt, about God's protective care.
But we can also learn from Peter's actions, by calling to Jesus. Then even, if we falter as Peter did, we can reach out to the one who walked on the sea and calmed the water (Matt. 8:26). No matter how threatening or confusing our circumstances may become, the good and loving Shepherd knows us and has promised to lead and protect us, even, when we go through the valley of the shadow if death. (Ps. 23:4)
Remembering these examples, we are encouraged to act in faith and turn to God in prayers. Believers through the ages have testified that God will help us to deal with our challenges in new and hopeful ways. With Christ you can face any problem, both imaginable and unimaginable.
PRAYER POINTS
1. Dear God, do help us to look beyond our own capabilities, and trust You to show us more excellent ways, in Jesus name.
2. Oh God, do help those Christians who are being tossed about by the sea o life, to look up to You, our great and ever-present Help in times of need.
3. In a time like this, Lord, help all believers to hold firm to our faith in you, regardless of the tempest billowing against us.
