"Seeing clearly what God is doing and can do in your life" Matthew 14:22-23 Sometimes God limits what we can see or how far down the road we can see. He limits what we can handle at the time. He works in our lives individually as we can handle it. I. Fix - our mind on God v. 26-29 Colossians 3:1-2 Focus on our Crucified Position Focus on our Resurrected Position Focus on our Future PositionO. Matthew 14:26-29 II. Obey - when God tells you to act v 27-29 Obey in faith. God may put us in scary situations but would put us in situation that He can’t control. Sometimes He wants us to step out in faith. Obey in fear - when we see or don't see the danger III. Cling - to God when you vs. 30 *Can't see Him *Are afraid *Lose hope Romans 12:9 Cling to God. Even when we can’t see Him. IV. Understand - God. We need to know Him through our relationship with Him. He sill loves us. *Loves you unconditionally *Leads you safely *Lands you successfully V. Stay - where God places you. 1 Corinthians 7:20 Each person should remain in the life situation in which he was called. *If He calls you to get out of the boat-then get out of the boat *If He leaves you in the boat or puts you back in the boat - stay in the boat *If He puts you on the shore or leaves you there - stay there! God leads us safely. Heaven is our final place. We don’t need to think the world is better than heaven. Wherever God has placed us, we must follow Him. If God tells you something then do it. Follow Him where He leads us.
