What If You Don’t Know How?

Sometimes, there are mountains we have to cross but we simply don’t know how. And sometimes, there isn’t any time to go get a tutorial or a teacher, you know? Life happens in the moment we are in.

I don’t know how to drive in heavy traffic. And I was really, really scared to do so. Partly because of memories, partly because I just never learned. I get clammy. I hate it with a passion. I always try to avoid it.

Until one day, God put His finger on my heart and declared that it had to go, that unreasonable fear. And God, He is the Lord, so I really did not have a choice. But I buckled under the pressure.

I just don’t know how. It feels too scary.

“Peter never learned how to walk on water,” the Holy Spirit whispered.

Really?

People always mention the part about Peter sinking, and he did. But truthfully, he only “began” to sink because he was actually walking on water, right?  And he never learned how.

So, what’s your secret, Pete?

He heard Jesus say “Come,” and he went.

Could it really be that simple? Could God’s command to come carry with it the grace necessary to do the coming, no matter what it is? Does the word have within it that kind of creative power?

God said to just drive in traffic. I buckled and did not obey. Then, God allowed a situation in which I had to drive in heavy traffic. He said “Come.”

And I went.

And in the going, I found HIm there. And in the going, I found that His provision and protection is more than I ever thought.

And in the going, I met with Him.
