“Let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me.”

For the last two weeks, I haven’t been able to escape “Oceans” by Hillsong United. It was only fitting that the gospel reading for the day is the inspiration for that song. Jesus called Peter out onto the water, and it took enormous faith for Peter to take that first step off the boat. Walk or sink… those were the only two possibilities. Aware of the risk, Peter took the step. The song calls us into a relationship with Jesus, where our “trust is without borders.” The first step is listening to that call. The second step, calls us out onto the water. I can’t get through a live performance of the song without crying. Over the last two weeks, I’ve heard it performed five or six times. Perhaps this passage and song are following me because I have a call to answer, and Jesus is just waiting for me to take that step. Maybe He is calling you to do the same. “Spirit lead me.”
