Why did you doubt?

Recently, I have been listening a lot to an song from Hillsong United called Oceans. In the middle of the song there’s a bridge with these words are repeated seven times.

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior


This song reminds me so much of the story of Peter and his faith and how it was was tested and expanded so much.

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

29 “Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:27-31 NIV

I think the Lord still stands today,arms outstretched, saying “come”. Remember, Peter walked on water. His faith was that big. So we stand here today with Peter’s example in front of us. I am sure the Lord has a test of faith for you. Will you go to where your trust has no boundaries? Why the world would you doubt?
