Get out of the Boat


On my way to church yesterday morning the old song "Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns came on the radio. 

The first lyrics are:
 "Oh what I would do to have the kind of faith it takes climb out of this boat I'm in, on to the crashing waves. "

I've heard this song for years, but those first lyrics kept floating around in my head. 
So often we are in our boat. The waves and winds are crashing against our boat and we have no idea what to do. But, all we end up doing is staying in our boat because it is our comfort zone. It is what we know. But all the while God is saying just get out of the boat, I'm here and I will make you walk on the very waves that were crashing against you because with me you are will always conquer the storm.

Wherever you are in life sooner or later {:if not now:} winds and waves are going to crash against your boat. When this happens muster every ounce of courage you have to get out of the boat and show God you are putting your faith in Him. Jesus will overcome, and already has overcome, every wind and wave that will ever come against your boat. It is always amazing what will happen when you take your life and in faith put it into God's hands.
