No Emergency

As I was reading Matthew 14:29,30 where it reads “Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘Lord, save me!'” , the word “emergency” came to thought.  Peter probably thought that as well.  That word brings out a feeling of alarm and fear.  Then I thought of the word, “emerge or emergence” and that brought up our God-given dominion or “bringing to light”.   Isn’t that what Jesus Christ reveals to us and was probably doing that day to Peter?   And as fear takes over, we lose faith and sink, but by reaching out, the Christ is always right there to lift us back up.  I am so grateful for Christ and by knowing Him, there is no emergency, only emergence into the light.
