Good morning.

We know we should trust the Lord, but it can seem overwhelming at times, can’t it? God doesn’t expect us to instantly have great faith.

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus met people where they were. There was Thomas, for whom faith depended on seeing nail marks in the Saviour’s hands. And the centurion, who believed his servant could be healed by a word from Christ. How about Peter, who trusted Jesus enough to get out of the boat but found the wind and waves too mind-boggling to continue. Each time, Jesus displayed only grace and understanding.

There are stages of faith. First, there’s little faith, which says, “I know He can but I’m not sure He will.” Next, as God proves Himself trustworthy, our faith grows and we begin to focus more on Him than on our circumstances. As we grow in our faith, as followers of Christ, we get to the point where we say, “I believe what God says, so I’m going to act!”

We grow in our faith by spending time with God. We can ask Him to help us trust more. When Peter became afraid of the waves, Jesus immediately reached out and caught him, and He’ll be there for you as well.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday.


Mike and Daphne
