The 21 days of waiting.
I was driving to work the other morning, and it had just finished raining. I looked to my left out of my window and saw the most beautiful rainbow. It was wide and massive, and I could see the entire arch of it. It was breathtaking.
Then God reminded me of something...
just as He promised never to flood the earth again, He also promised never to leave me or forsake me. And even though I have felt like we were drowning in the murky water and the waves were about to pull us under, His gentle hand has kept us afloat. He keeps us from drowning in the caotic murky water of our life.
Peter, suddenly bold, said, "Master if it's really you, call me to come to you in the water." He said,"Come ahead." Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on the water to Jesus. But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, "Master save me!" Jesus didn't hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, "Faint heart, what got into you?" The two of them climbed into the boat, and the wind died down. The disciples having watched the whole thing, worshiped Jesus saying, "This is it! You are God's son for sure."
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you."
