There is a real danger in distractions and placing all of your attention on the wrong things. Just like Peter even though Jesus had gone ahead of him to prepare the way. Peter could see power before him but he chose to focus on why walking on water was not for him. He believed he’d surely drown and that he didn’t have the same access to next level existence as Jesus.
When Peter focused on Jesus, his natural instinct was to follow forward. This is important to stop and ponder on for a second. The moment he focused on Jesus he without hesitation leaned in and walked towards him. It was as natural as taking another breath after exhaling. It wasn’t until he broke his focus to look around and discover where his blind faith had taken him that he began to sink. Jesus was already there. If Jesus was there and he was clearly inviting Peter to join him, then “there” defying all natural laws was Peters to tap into and defy as well.
Don’t allow distractions and false security steal your truth and promise. You know the desires of your heart, you know the voice deep within that calls you to more. Don’t allow past disappointments or distractions dictate your current narrative. That way of thinking can leave you broken, depleted and looking at your situation from a perspective of less or loss. The truth is, you are no less in the position you were in before the distraction so keep going. The enemy cannot create anything to really knock you off God’s plans for you but he can deceive you into thinking things that are seen through your filters of fear and doubt are real. Remember all the questions, worries and focus on lack are only there to distract you from your calling and deceive you into thinking you are not your fathers child. You do have super power. You are the offspring of the creator of everything. His gifts were placed in you, his love surrounds you, his grace protects you and he will always lead you to more. He will never lead you over water to drown. He will always lead you over to new levels of faith and reveal where your help cometh from. You can’t do it in your own strength but in partnership with him all the natural rules, gravity included can’t stand a chance against your supernatural anointing. Happy Tuesday Everyone. Be Blessed & A Blessing To Others.
