Every journey begins with one step.
You may have a long journey planned.
You may have a big project in mind or dream in your heart.
The whole thing could be compromised by doubt, sabotaged by fear.
We can be convinced it’s a God plan
but paralysed to start because of self doubt.
Eleven disciples stayed in the boat.
Peter got out of it.
The whole Israelite army shuddered at the sabre rattling Philistines.
David faced Goliath.
What was the difference?
David knew his covenant and was certain of the outcome.
He faced a one headed monster and finished the job.
Peter faced a two headed monster and only had partial success.
He overcame the doubt but fear overcame him.
Peter is a lesson in starting.
David a lesson finishing.
David neither doubted nor feared.
Matthew 14:22-31 / 1 Sam. 17
