Psalm 98 – O sing unto the Lord a new song, for He hath done marvelous things! His right hand and His holy arm hath gotten Him the victory.
2 The Lord hath made known His salvation; His righteousness hath He openly shown in the sight of the heathen.
3 He hath remembered His mercy and His truth toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth! Make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise!
5 Sing unto the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the voice of a psalm.
6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King!
7 Let the sea roar and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein.
8 Let the floods clap their hands, let the hills be joyful together
9 before the Lord. For He cometh to judge the earth; with righteousness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity.
When our FAITH is big enough, we are able to do everything !! That is, what the Lord had promised us. Let us see the story about Peter on the water – as long as he believed, that he would be able to make the way on the water to Jesus, he could do it. But, when he was distressed by bad winds, he began to fear, all of a sudden began to stumble. FAITH is to believe in what we cannot see !! Our doubts make our thoughts go into the wrong direction, they whisper into our ears e make us self-conscious. Temptations are very big that lead us to leave our faith and make us believe in things that we are able to see in front of us. Let us read otherwise the episode with Jesus and Peter walking onto the water:
Matthew 14: 25-32 — And in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit”; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spoke unto them, saying, “Be of good cheer. It is I; be not afraid.”
28 And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water.”
29 And He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, “Lord, save me!”
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand and caught him and said unto him, “O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?”
32 And when they had come into the boat, the wind ceased.
We can also read John 15:7 If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
LET US THANK THE LORD FOR ALL THE GOOD THINGS WE HAVE AND LET US PRAY TO HIM !!
