And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. - Matthew 14:28–29 (NKJV)
I do believe that every believer’s life is marked by windows of opportunity that demand they take radical steps of faith in order to accomplish the purposes of God for their lives.
And the thing that makes those steps radical is that they invariably involve significant risk.
Where there is no risk, there can be no faith.
And where there is no faith, there can be no real manifestation of the power of God.
Peter was given such a window of opportunity that it demanded he take a radical step of faith that involved significant risk.
And when he did, his risk-taking faith encountered the supernatural power of God that allowed him to defy the odds and walk upon the water.
And likewise today, every person’s life that is greatly used by God and who experiences the supernatural power of God, takes great risks!
