Growing in Confidence & Humility Simultaneously

Description

When Jesus has shown up and displayed His glory through you in an impossible situation, you grow in confidence. But your confidence is not in yourself; it’s in Jesus, the Great Hero.

So, Jesus is walking on water in the midst of a crazy storm.

And Peter recognizes Him and asks if he can meet Him on the water.

Peter gets out of the boat and walks on water, but then he begins to sink.

Often we say Peter failed. But nothing can be further from the truth. The disciples who stayed in the boat failed because they didn’t get out of the boat.

At least Peter trusted Jesus enough to get out of the boat.

That water-walking lesson prepared Peter for his destiny.

What do I mean?

When, like Peter, you’ve taken steps of faith—the kind of steps that require Jesus to be the Hero of the story—your confidence in Him takes root in your soul. You realize that if He doesn’t do it, what you are attempting will fail miserably.

By the way, the great majority of humanity never fails miserably, but they rarely ever accomplish anything great either, because they fail to attempt things that only Jesus can accomplish through them.

When Jesus has shown up and displayed His glory through you in an impossible situation, you grow in confidence. But your confidence is not in yourself; it’s in Jesus, the Great Hero.

This produces humility.

The more Jesus does through you, the more humble you become because you know it’s Him doing it.

What’s impossible for you is Him-possible.

I have never in my life felt so small and Jesus so big.
