Today’s Scripture

“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 he came toward Jesus.”

(Matthew 14:28–29, AMP)

Step Out of the Boat

Why do you think Peter wanted to get out of the boat? Why did he all of the sudden think he could walk on water when Jesus called him? Well, you might say, “Joel, it’s because he saw Jesus open the blind eyes and cleanse the lepers.” Yes, that’s true. But the other disciples in the boat saw the same things.

Why didn’t they want to get out? I believe it was because Peter understood that it was his time. He stirred up his faith. He believed at that moment that he could do what God placed in his heart. Jesus said, “Peter, do you want to get out of that boat?” He said, “Yes, I do.” Jesus replied, “Well, come on out.” Notice that Jesus didn’t say, “Peter, stay in that boat. Don’t you know I’m the Son of God?” No. He said, “Peter, I like your attitude of faith. I like the fact that you believe you can do great things.”

I encourage you today to have that same kind of boldness. Start believing that your time is here! All the dreams that you’ve buried, those desires that you thought would never work out, it’s time to start believing again. It’s your time, and it’s time to step out of the boat!

A Prayer for Today

“Dear Father, today I choose to believe Your Word. I believe You are faithful to complete the good work You’ve started in my life. I choose to follow Your voice and step out of the boat. Thank You for bringing to pass the dreams in my heart in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

    • We started telling PF to STEP OUT OF THE BOAT a year ago when Sata died, but the heavy Kambwilis even sat in middle causing Zambia to sink, with Kwacha soaked wet.

    • We should not blame the pastor for everything, we should blame the congregation for being too gullible. The pastor is human, he’s trying to survive just like everybody, but it’s unfortunate the congregation followed him blindly. It’s funny how christians expect truth from a pastor when he knows his income depends on how long they remain brainwashed by the bible.

  4. “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 he came toward Jesus.”

    This is what religion does to you…you even believe such folly of this white character walking of water like a spider.

    Wake up from your docility AFRIKANS and go study about your own ancestors!!

  5. Deep spiriual lessons, thankyou, applying to our situation God has given us dominion and the things we see as impossible can be made possible by faith, perhaps peter was a leader ceasing the opportunity while the others may have been content,

    • Definition of faith in relation to religion; strong belief in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual conviction rather than proof.

  6. @jay Jay faith calls us to proof too, u start beiieving unseen as though ther we ther and it comes in reality, hebrews 11:1 its like saying love is not ther since science didnt find a formula or proof for it, christianity binds love or charity, hope and faith as things we cant do away with 1 cor 13;13

  7. @jay Jay U Beileve more on man’s definition of faith, these ar matters from above and only the above can define them for u, read hebrews 11:1 for the precise meaning of faith, the unseen becoming visible and thats the proof

  8. Religion is merely the practice of training your mind to ignore evidence, logic and reason, while being able to believe in fairy-tales based on faith alone….AND BEING PROUD OF IT RATHER THAN BEING ASHAMED.
    YOU want proof that we sons and daughters of great kings and queens go to the Zimbabwe and Egypt see evidence of great cities, even skeletons are there of people who lived 6000 years ago…where is the evidence of your characters in the people in your bible who live only mere 2000 years.

    Wake up from your stupor and study about self wake up!!

  9. @jay jay curiosity? studyn about my ancietors is good but doesnt answer basic questions on creation, when a child is born into this world u can tel it u carry genes of its forefathers but it wil be a lie to tel its forefathers created this world, a big bang theory perharps makes more sense to you but your child might stil have questions as it grows up as some things ar only explained in religions, christianity talks of freedom from error and thats what i read your comment is all about

    • When you understand the difference between God and Religion….your eyes will open…do you not know that Hitler was a staunch Christian who believed in every word in the your contradictory bible. What freedom does Christianity talk about when it condoned slavery, oppression…go out and study about self and where you fit as an Afrikan. I do not need the white man’s bible or religion to tell me what’s wrong or right….the bantu in me is my moral compass.
      Wake up from your stupor my brother or sister!!

  11. @jay Jay either in ubuntu or christianity we ar taught what is good or bad, hitler must ve bin a bad student of christianity just like idi amin must have been a bad student of ubuntu, ultimately what we call mulungu is what is called God, perhaps urgument is not to accept Christ since he was an american or british? we nid our own?

  13. Any way my tribes men knew about hell long before the white man came, and so they white mans message only confirmed what my forefathers had known in part, they also believed in witch craft but wer not happy with it so when the bible said its evil they stopped the practice, my culture had polygamy but the word of God sets the next generation free
