Mark 6:50 (NLT) — 50 They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”

Most of us would probably say, “Lord if I could just see you I would take courage and I wouldn’t be afraid. However in the Kingdom of God by faith we take courage and are not afraid. That is just the way it is in the kingdom. Do you remember what Jesus said to Thomas after Thomas wouldn’t believe that Jesus was alive unless he saw and touched Jesus’ wounds? > John 20:29 (NLT) — 29 Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”

Do you want to be blessed in this life? Believe what the scriptures say. You can’t go beyond what you believe. What is it that you have a hard time believing for? What do the scriptures say? Remember that God’s word is God’s voice. Also remember that Peter walked on water when he believed that the Lord asked him to come out of the boat >

John 14:28&29 (NLT) — 28 Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, who is greater than I am. 29 I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you will believe.

It was only when Peter quit believing that he started to sink. The Lord doesn’t want any of  us to sink. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you to believe.
