Want To Walk On Water?

Ever heard of the story of the second man to walk on water? His name was Peter and he was a fisherman who had met Jesus and also spent time touring the land of Israel with Him. If you were to meet Jesus, what would you ask Him? Back to the story, Peter wanted to be sure that He was actually seeing Jesus and not a ghost when he saw a Jesus lookalike walking on the sea, he asked: "If it is You, command me to come to You on the water." So, Jesus beckoned on him to come. Peter got off his boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. However, as Peter was making his way to Jesus on water, the wind was boisterous and Peter became frightened and started to sink. He cried out to Jesus to save him and Jesus didn't hesitate. Jesus reached and grabbed his hand and saved him. However, Jesus had to question his faith, He told him that he should not have doubted (Paraphrase of Matthew 14:24-31).

Can you see yourself in Peter? You know God, you have a relationship with Him, however there are things that pop into your mind or things that you see or hear or read that generate fear or doubt in your heart. Let me remind you that you are not alone. The devil constantly sows seeds of fear and doubt in us.

How do you deal with this? 

Recognise that fear and doubt will not add anything positive to your life. The scripture says that you should be anxious for nothing but to turn that anxiety into an opportunity to pray for God's help regarding the anxiety. (Phil 4:6)

Recognise that you can't control what people say or write, you can't control some things from happening etc. However, you can control how you respond to it. How then do you respond? 

When you feel afraid about anything, remind yourself of the power of God and remind yourself of what the Word of God says about that situation. Constantly say it out loud or you can respond to the thought in your head as well. If you confront the negative thoughts in your head with the Word of God, you will overcome the fear as the Word of God will give you victory, peace and further directions. Like Peter reached out to Jesus, remember to reach out to Jesus and not to things that would add to your fears and doubts. Jesus Christ is always calling out to us to do both the possible and seemingly impossible. Don't be faint hearted like Peter, step out with boldness!

Have a lovely week.

Hello Myss Lafunky's readers & followers

Happy New Week. How was your weekend? Apologies for the long break. Myss Lafunky would like to thank some of our committed readers and followers that have contacted me to ask why articles were not being published. Thank you for your care. We are back now. 

Today's post has been written by one of our guest writers, Sage. I trust you will learn a couple of things from this short write-up.  Two major lessons for me from today's post are: 1) To have a fulfilled and satisfied life on this earth, Jesus Christ (Including His principles) must be part of our everyday living and it is only in Him that we can have a long lasting fulfilled life. 2) Our lives and souls can never be at rest until we find rest in God.

What is that water you're drinking? Alcohol? Sex? Porn? Drugs? Womanising? Greed? Social media followers? Have you noticed how you can never be satisfied by these things? We lie to ourselves that once we drink of this water, we'll be okay. Lies!! These things were never designed to satisfy us; they were designed to keep us thirsty and wanting more of it. 

The only water that is designed to satisfy us is Jesus. Note His conversation with the woman at the well. Jesus is the only one that has the waters that will satisfy you for eternity.

“Jesus answered her, Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water that I give him will never be thirsty again. But the water that I give him will become in him a spring of water [satisfying his thirst for God] welling up [continually flowing, bubbling within him] to eternal life.
The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not get thirsty nor [have to continually] come all the way here to draw.” (John 4:13-15, Amplified Version)
