April 30

There are days that I just want to stay in bed, but when God calls you out, you get up! He will sometimes call you out of one place to move you on to another to help fulfill His purpose for you. Though there may be nothing wrong with where you are, you may only be there for a time of growth and preparation. It can be a scary thing to venture out of the comfort of what you know, but when you're stepping into God's plan, the only scary part is stepping out of the boat. The sea is vast and full of uncertainties, but our Savior is right there; if we follow His instructions and walk toward His voice, we will walk on the water right to Him. When God is calling you to step out in faith, you will recognize His voice, you will know when it's time, and even if there is a twinge of doubt, He's right there to grab hold of your hand and rescue you from your doubt. Trust in Him and the plan He has for you and step out of the boat into that plan!

But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid." And Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water." He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me." Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" Matthew 14:27-31
