Have you ever seen God reveal Himself in such a way that your faith soared to new heights? If you are a believer in Christ, you have. At a minimum, this happened at salvation. Before salvation, you had no faith. When you trusted Christ, your faith was born. It soared to a new height. But I hope that was not the only time your faith grew.

Perhaps you would say with me that God has continued to reveal Himself to you, and your faith grows to a new height. This revelation always comes through His Word. During these times, you don’t just think God is big enough, you know He is. But what happens? Life hits you. Family members get sick. Unplanned medical expenses come. People let you down. You let yourself down. During these times, God doesn’t seem as big as He did before.

Remember when Peter walked on water. Imagine being one of the disciples, if not Peter Himself. Here you are out in the Sea of Galilee. You have been rowing for hours to get across, but you cannot, because the Sea is “boisterous.” Then you see something unimaginable, a person walking on the water. You bet the disciples were frightened, but after Jesus came closer and said, “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid,” something else happened entirely. Their fear of ghosts, the storm, even death is swallowed up in new faith. For Peter, His faith grew so much that he asked the Lord if He could join Him out on the water!

Alas, you know what happened. Peter took his attention off of Jesus and put it on the storm. Faith was diminished or gone; fear swept in, and Peter sank. Peter cried out, “Lord, save me.” Oh, how quickly came the answer to Peter’s prayer. “And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”

Peter caught a glimpse that night of how big Jesus Christ is. In that moment, Peter understood that Jesus Christ is big enough for all of life’s problems and situations. In similar moments, when God has revealed this to me, and it is as clear as a moonlit night out in the far country, I too have made my decisions to follow Him. This has propelled me to commit to tithe, to read my Bible daily, to pray continually, to be a witness, and so much more.

Dear reader, God is big enough for you to trust Him. He is big enough for all of your problems and situations. He can and does walk on top of the storm. Your problems and mine are under His feet, and if you are ever like me or Peter and you begin to focus on the storm instead of Him, don’t forget that Jesus’ helping hand is just one simple prayer away. GOD IS BIG ENOUGH!
