I AM! Take Courage

In Matthew 15:25-32 Jesus comes to the disciples walking on the water. At first they think He is a ghost and fear grips them. Then He speaks to them in a way that would encourage, invite and challenge their faith.

Jesus speaks the same words that God spoke to Moses in Exodus 3:14, I AM. I can just hear those two simple words resounding over the water and the storm. The key to no fear, the key to moving toward God, the key to faith.

As Peter hears these two amazing words, he remembers the story of Moses. He sees the Red Sea parting and his ancestors walking on dry ground to the other side.

Peter accepts the encouragement and seeks an invitation. Jesus invites Peter to join Him in an amazing faith challenge.

Are we hearing the "I AM" of Jesus today as clearly as Peter did that day in the boat? When we see things coming toward us that look fearful or destructive can we see Jesus walking right in the middle of it saying "come", "I AM" is with you?

I AM everything you need! Trust Him today!
