My Daily Devotional


Step Out Of The Boat

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”
Psalm 37:5-6

There are times in each of our lives where it seems we have gone from a position where we have been secure to one where we have been on shaky ground. Uncertainly causes this feeling in most of us. I have always thought of Peter when he took his first step out of the boat. Being a fisher I am sure he was confident even in a storm in his boat and felt it was a place of safety for him. But the minute he stepped over the side of the boat and placed his foot solidly on the top of the first wave, he was in foreign territory. Walking on water was not something he did routinely and neither do we. God tells us to commit our way to him and trust in him. When we put our trust in the Lord and commit to follow him we are actually stepping out of our boats and onto the solid rock. God will never allow us to fall when we are living by faith. I know that during the past several years I have put my complete faith and trust in God and have actually stepped out of the boat and relied on him to not let me fall. I did not know where I was going but I followed God’s commands for my life and God has kept me up and did not let me fall. When you are facing times of uncertainty in your life, this is the time to get with God and let him hold you up and keep you from falling. Putting your trust in God and depending upon him is worthwhile as once you have done it, it becomes easier and easier to deal with our problems.
