(Matthew 14:26-32), And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I, be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
When we were babies while resting in our mother's arms, we never had the fear of her dropping us. We didn't have to worry about whether our diapers would be changed or whether or not would be fed. As newborn babies we didn't have a care in the world. We didn't know fear, we didn't know that if you were to drop us out of a second story window we would suffer death. As babies we loved it when you threw us high up in the air and caught us in your arms before we hit the floor. We actually did not know the consequences if you didn't catch us. We trusted our parents, we knew noting about fear.
If you are a babe in Christ, you are "walking into unknown" territory. You don't know what probably will arise from one day to the next. But Jesus is is bidding you to come closer, trust in Him to walk on water and He will catch you will you stumble. It's okay to be a little nervous but remember Jesus Christ won't let you fall. You are the sheep that the bible talks about saying, that Jesus is your Shepherd and He will not leave not one of His sheep.
Don't make the same mistake that Peter made. When you are in that unknown territory of you life, keep your focus on Jesus. Don't take your eyes off the prize. Jesus will not bid you to come if He doesn't have your back. Even though Peter made the mistake of taking his eyes off Jesus, Jesus caught him before he began to sink. Just like when you were a newborn baby, Jesus will catch you before you sink, while you are "walking into the unknown", which is Satan's territory. While "walking into the unknown" there are times when you just feel like giving up. While "walking into the unknown" you scream and feel like pulling your hair out. You say to yourself, "Lord, you never put more on us than we can handle, I CAN'T HANDLE THIS! Lord, you said, You are an on time God, I THINK IT'S TIME NOW! PRAISE GOD FOR WALKING INTO THE UNKNOWN WITH YOU! AMEN!
