As Christians, we need to avoid the things of this world that draw our attention away from the Lord. Peter stepped out of the boat in faith, but when he took his eyes off Jesus he began to sink. Many times we like Peter step out in faith, but when we take our eyes off Jesus we stumble. It is in these times when we need to reach up to Jesus and let Him lift us up.
But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
Even when we stumble, the Lord is there to forgive us and lift us up out of our sin. Remember that the Lord is always there. All we need to do is look up, and let the Lord take us by the hand.
