A Prayer A Day – 12/04/2014

He Said ‘Come’, Will You Walk?

If Today’s Prayer Is A Blessing To You, Please Share It With Others

Today’s Scripture(s) – Matthew 14:28-29

 

“And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.”

 

How many of you have asked the Lord to take you deeper in Him? I have to ask this question because I have and I know that I am not alone. We asked the Lord to take us deeper, we’ve cried out to Him, sat in our place of prayer crying at the Lord, (that’s what I say I do, cry at Him), and the Lord says just like He said to Peter ‘Come.’ We get excited about hearing the Lord say ‘Come.’ And we step out. Oh yes we step out of the comfort zone and we start to walk on the water and for half a second we are smiling and saying ‘I’m doing it’ until we take our eyes off of the Lord and start worrying about what’s happening around us. You see Child of God, when we ask the Lord to take us deeper and the Lord says ‘Come.’ The condition on our ‘sea’ isn’t going to be calm. Most of the time our sea is bolstering and giving us trouble and we are crying at the Lord about what is happening on our sea and in the time of our toil we are asking the Lord to take us deeper and the Lord is asking us to have faith and not doubt Him. The Lord is saying to us ‘Come.’ We must learn to keep our eyes on the Lord. We must not look at the things, the winds and the waves, that are rocking our boats. We must no matter what keep our eyes on the Lord and walk towards Him and only Him. It is when our eyes stray to what’s happening on our sea that we begin to sink. So often the emphasis is on the fact that Peter sank. But let’s not look at that, let’s look at the fact that Peter asked the Lord to ‘bid’ him to come to Him on the water. 1 – Peter had enough faith to believe that if the Lord told him to come to Him on the water that he would be able to do it and 2 – Peter got out of the boat and he began to walk to where Jesus was. If the Lord says you ‘Can’, you ‘Can’. It’s just that simple. We love to ‘quote’ Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” we quote it and that’s good, there is power in speaking the Word of God! There’s power in getting God’s Word deep into our hearts and speaking it out of our mouths, creating in the atmosphere the Lord’s will for our lives. Now it’s time to take action! We can say it all day, but until we put action to it manifestation is not going to come forth. Peter could have asked the Lord to ‘bid’ him to come to Him on the water and the Lord said ‘Come’ and Peter could have sat there on the boat and not have stepped out on to the water to walk to the Lord. He could have had a quick moment of doubt after asking the Lord and looked around at the winds and the waves and said in his heart, ‘Um…I think I better stay in the boat’. Guess what? That’s what many of us are doing. Many of us are staying in the boat. The Lord is saying ‘Come’ and we are sitting in the boat looking at our winds and waves and saying: “I think I better stay in the boat”. The Lord is saying ‘Come.’ Don’t doubt Him, just keep your eyes on Him and move.

Today’s Prayer:

Father I thank you for this another day. Lord thank you for touching me and waking me up this morning. Thank you Father for your goodness and your mercy and your grace on my life, I thank and praise you Father God for your love and your kindness to me, thank you Father for loving me and caring for me and caring about me. I bless your Father for all your great goodness to me. Thank you Father God, you are so great. Lord today I ask that you would forgive me for doubting you. Forgive me for doubting you even a little bit. Forgive me for not trusting you to take care of me, not trusting you to lead me. I realize and know that when I doubt, I am not putting my trust in you, forgive me Father. Lord I will keep my eyes on you. I will put my focus totally on you. I will not look at the things that are happening around me, I will set my eyes I will fix my eyes on you for you are my hope, my help and my strength and I can trust in you for all things …”Your grace is sufficient for me, your strength is made perfect when I am weak, all that I cling to I lay at your feet, your grace is sufficient for me” … My eyes will stay on you Lord. I have asked you to take me deeper, you have already said to me ‘Come’ I am coming to you Lord, I am stepping out on the sea and I am keeping my eyes on you. I will not doubt and I will not fear. You are with me and I know that because you Lord are with me, and you are for me I cannot fail. Blessing and honor to you Father God. Bless your great and wonderful name. Lord I thank and praise you for all things you are so wonderful. You are so awesome. You are so great and I love you Lord. I love you and I give you all praise. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

 If You Have Not Made Jesus Lord Of Your Life Pray This Prayer:

Today Lord, right this very minute I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need a Savior. Your word says that there is no other name under heaven by which a man or woman can be saved and that name is Jesus. Today I repent of every sin that I have ever committed, I repent of every sin that I have done and I ask you Jesus to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I believe that you Lord Jesus shed your precious blood and died for my sins, I am willing to turn from sin and live a life that is holy and pleasing in your sight. I now invite you Christ Jesus to come into my heart and live in me and be my personal Savior. I ask that you would fill me with your precious Holy Spirit, lead and guide me in this life Lord Jesus. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen.
