Only the other day I was reading about Peter stepping out of the boat (Matt 14:22-33) when I realized that Jesus dared Peter to step out in the middle of a storm. He didn’t wait until the winds had died down, until it was all peaceful outside but when all the elements were raging about them and the rain was thrashing down! Peter dared and Peter walked on water! I think perhaps I can dare and I can walk on water too and as long as I keep my eyes fixed on Jesus there won’t be a chance of sinking! I’m pretty sure if I “JUMP” He will catch me. I’m not going to wait for the peace to come or even the “right moment”, I’m going to do it when He says GO!
On Father’s Day Hannah made her Daddy a card and on it she wrote that her Daddy was ‘daring’. The same day when Anthony gave his Dad a gift it was a bottle of aftershave called….. wait for it….. “DARE”!! Wow – a Double Dare. For the last month I have heard the Lord say “Take a risk”, I Double Dare You, JUMP!!!!!” I know it’s gonna be good, stupendous, breathtaking, magical, like bungee jumping! Problem is you have to jump first – trust. When the moment comes I AM going to do it, I AM going to dare and I AM going to step into the new thing that God has for us. Would you JUMP if He told you to? Would you take a risk and walk on water? I think you should, I think it would be fun!
