Learning to trust in God is not easy, and actually it can be quite challenging.
The disciples were continually having experiences where they had to choose
between faith and fear. One example is when they were out in their boat on the
Sea of Galilee, and a storm arose. They were very frightened, then Christ appeared.
Peter wanted Jesus to verify that it was Him, so he asked Jesus to help him walk on
the water. Peter was able to walk on the water, while he was focusing on Christ. When
he lost his focus on Christ and let his fears take over, Peter began to sink. When we face
difficult circumstances, do we choose to give in to our fears or step out in faith?
The more times we choose to step out in faith and trust God, the stronger our faith
Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will
strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)
