But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. Matthew 14:27-29
There are times in life where God gives what I call a “Green Light.” It is similar to waiting at an intersection for your turn to go. If you enter at the wrong time, accidents, danger, and even death can happen. Oh, but when God gives you a green light, it is Him bidding you to come! That green light from God is an invitation with a promise to keep you. I have found myself on so many occasions feeling like Peter. Knowing that feeling in the pit of my soul that God was calling me into an unfamiliar place. Truthfully, even knowing the bidding was from God, fear tried to immobilize me. Fear will keep you in park, missing your divine moments to walk on water. Courage is taking the Green Light even when you feel fear.
God will never give you an assignment that will not be accompanied by His grace and provision. These are some unique times that we as a nation have been faced with. Many of us in our ministry, church, family, finances, and careers have been challenged to do things and fulfill new roles that we have not had to do before. It may mean pursing something so completely out of the scope of what you would consider normal. But in this year of Elevation look for your Green Light!
I would just like to share this Word from the heart of God. There is a fail proof plan when you seek him first (Proverbs 3:5-6). If you are not sure… remember the words of Peter, “Lord if it be thou, bid me come.” When He is doing the bidding, you will have good success.
Green Light! Go!
