Higher Level of Faith

Listen to the Message
Matthew 14:22-32
Even though he didn’t do it perfectly, he did walk on water. 
He never hesitated to step out in faith. 
“But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!””
‭‭Acts ‭3:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬
1. Express to God your willingness to take a step. 
  • “Lord, I’m afraid of what I see in my life,
  • Fear has an amazing capacity to get our attention. 
2. When you get the go-ahead, go-ahead. 
  • “Come to me on the water.”
  • Part A is waiting for God to give you the go-ahead
  • Part B s when you get the go-ahead, GO-AHEAD. 
  • He never tells you to do anything that contradicts His Word. 
  • If you’ll listen for his voice, He’ll tell you what to do. 
3. If you start to sink, ask for help. 
  • Peter took his eye off the Lord for a moment, but it did not hesitate to call out to Jesus for help. 
  • When you’re stepping out in faith, you know better than to depend on yourself. 
  • What happened between the time Jesus caught Peter and they climbed into the boat?
  • This event was not a humiliating defeat for Peter, it was a resounding success. 
  • When you are stepped by out in faith, you know that if Jesus doesn’t hold up, nothing else will.
