He said, “Come!” And Peter…walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid. and he began to sink, and he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Holy Bible Amplified Version
When the Lord calls us most times there will be loud mouths that step forward with boisterous talk mocking you in public as well as in private. They will boisterously challenge your calling. Do not be surprised if they call you a fool and insane. The worst offenders of course will be family and friends. Boy did they mock and ridicule me and call me insane.
Do not listen to them or they will sink you. And if you do and you will feel yourself sinking under their waves of criticism and mockery, call out to Christ and He will lift you above those boisterous windbags.
Listen to the Lord and have faith in Him. I did and we accomplished numerous amazing things.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with the strength and faith (trust) to be obedient unto Your calling no matter the loud mouths antagonistic and critical mocking attitude and behaviour towards me when I obey Your calling. I humbly request this in the name of He who was bitterly mocked on the cross by those who refused to believe Your calling unto Him here on planet earth Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
