There will be times throughout our lives as believers in which God will demand things out of us that seemingly are beyond us!
we move into a brand new year and a new decade, the Lord is preparing
many of us to face impossible challenges! Not ordinary, feed the
family, pay the bills, meet the payroll type challenges, but positive
opportunities to serve His Kingdom purpose that will be so far above
our heads that we will be tempted to ask, "How can I do this? This is impossible!"
Just as Jesus demanded that Peter get out of the boat and walk on
water, the Lord is going to lead some of us in this coming year to get
out of the boat of ordinariness and walk out into areas where we have
never walked before. It is going to be frightening! We are going to be
tempted say, "How can this be? I have had my life so
planned...everything was together...yet the Lord is asking me to step
out into things that I have never stepped out into before!"
Based on Matthew's astonishing account of Peter walking on the Sea
of Galilee, in this challenging and thought provoking message, Bishop
Kouri deals with what it is going to take for each of us to get out of
the boat of ordinariness (church or business as usual), and walk on
water, even if it is miracle steps that we are going to have to take.
