I wonder how often we are motivated by fear of one kind or another and don’t even realize it. We don’t speak up because we fear rejection of our idea. Last week on the Amazing Race, one team got knocked out because of a member’s fear of heights.
We have no trouble believing in God’s power and faithfulness for someone else, but we fear going out on the limb ourselves because what if it breaks. Of course, proven over and over again, it’s out on the limb that we find out just how powerful and faithful God is. If Peter had never said “get up and walk” out loud, they never would have seen that miracle.
So why aren’t we more faithfully fearless?
