I am going to get out the boat. I am going to believe that I can walk on the water.
The water is representative of the world I live in, most of the time I feel fine. I can be in the boat and believe that everything is fine. The only trouble is that they only seem fine.
When the storms come upon the boat the water comes over the side. The world begins to touch me; I instantly go into low self esteem; self hatred and a wrong image of myself.
Jesus has called me to overcome. That is to overcome all the stuff the world throws at me.
I am in control of the situation in the boat, I feel safe and secure even though the water fills me with fear. Jesus wants me to get out the boat; that is not relying on myself.
I will believe that in Jesus I can overcome the water. I trust Jesus and climb out the boat.
I walk on the water.
Today is the day that I finally begin rising above the pain and turmoil.
Is today the day for you?
