And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” –Matthew 14:31 (NKJV)
Do you understand what you’re asking God for? God exists on a level much…MUCH higher than ours. We must understand that in exiting of our comfort zones and reaching for Him will be unlike any other experience. We are attempting to be more spiritual in a physical world. Notice in our scene here that Jesus is out walking on the water while Peter is in the boat at first. We need to understand that we are nowhere near God’s level.
Man’s most intricate and complex achievements are much less than simple to the Lord. Basically, it is like we are just sitting in a boat and God is out walking on water. The former being something very normal, the latter being something wildly extraordinary. When we get ready to get closer to God we need to know that we will be leaving our comfort zones. This will include dropping old habits, friends, places, thoughts, desires, motives, and much more. It is difficult, but necessary. The worth of it is greater than I could explain. Are you ready to go higher? At all costs?
