Daily devotional: Walk in faith into Jesus' world

Scripture
"Come," he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
Matthew 14:29 NIV

Observation
Peter recognized that Jesus had more to offer than the ordinary life. He stepped out from the ordinary and stepped into the miraculous world of Jesus.

Application
Don't settle for the ordinary life lived in my own strength. Step in faith into the miraculous work that Jesus is doing and don't doubt His ability to work in supernatural ways. Keep my eyes fixed on Him, the Author and Perfecter of my faith.

Prayer
Lord, You are the Author of my faith who allows me to trust fully in You. Thank you that You are also the Perfecter of my faith. Like Peter, I want to step out of the boundaries of human limitations in the life and work You are leading me into. And I pray that as the Perfecter of my faith, You will help me not to doubt that You can and will work all things for Your glory. Please call me to come into Your miraculous work just as you called Peter to come to You on the water. Help me not to settle but rather to experience all that You have in store for the one who loves and follows after You. I love you, Lord!
