Are You on Thin Ice?

Long ago late one winter’s night David, Thane and I wanted to take a shortcut home.
So we decided to go across a large lake that had frozen over. It was cold and pitch dark out with no moon light as we started to cross. With the lakes silence as we cross we started talking with each other.
About halfway across I started to hear a sound. So I called out to my friends telling them so. We all pause listened and looked out like three feet from us and saw that there was no more ice, we were hearing the waters current. We then realized that we were standing on thin Ice. So we walked backwards slowly from the way we came not allowing fear or doubt to take hold of us.
You see I have very bad hearing and on that night God saved us by allowing me to hear the waters current He allowed me to hear the sound of the lake that saved our lives. He saved us from falling in the lake and being drowned to death.

Scripture shares with us that one late night on a lake Peter was saved by God as well almost the same way.
You see that particular night Jesus came walking on water 
towards the boat the disciples were in and they saw him walking towards them and they were in fear.
Jesus said to them,
“Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid
So Peter called out, “If it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. Jesus said, “Come.”

Peter climbed out of the boat but he took his eyes off of Jesus and seeing the water all around him started to fear. So he began to sink. And cried out,
”Save me Lord.”
Jesus stretched forth his hand and caught him. And said unto him, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” Matthew 14:25-31 
Jesus saved Peter from being drowned to death.
And you know what?
He can save you.
Many of us doubt at times because of the circumstances around us. But be of good cheer Jesus is still able to save you by crying out to him.
He can and will deliver you if you let him.
