Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) – Song Of The Week

I wonder what Peter was thinking, how he was feeling. I mean, he wasn’t the only disciple in the boat. He wasn’t the only one who saw Jesus coming. But He was the only one who asked to go to Him, instead of just waiting. Yes, Jesus was heading their way to meet them. And He’ll meet us, too. But sometimes I’d like to just get out of the boat and make my way to meet Him!

Maybe that’s how Peter felt. Maybe it went something like this, “I know You’ll come to me, Lord, but I can’t wait any longer. I’ve got to get to You now! I don’t want You to come to where I am, cause Lord, I don’t want to stay here. I’d much rather come to where You are!”

Yes, I do know that Peter became a little fearful. And when he became a little fearful, he looked away and fell. For anyone out there that has ever decided to step out of the boat, you know that this is usually where the story ends. You’ve fallen. You took your eyes off of the Savior and stumbled. Waves are crashing around you and all you can think now is, “Why did I ever try to leave the boat??”

BUT JESUS!!! Yes, that’s right! But Jesus stretched out His hand and grabbed on to Peter’s. He lifted him up right out of the crashing waves. And He wants to do the same for you. He doesn’t want you to give up just because you fell. He longs for you to trust Him, let Him help you up again, and keep going. So whatever you’re stepping away from, trust the Lord. Keep your eyes on Him. And if you fall, grab His hand and get back up! Rest in His embrace!



Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)
Hillsong United

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep my faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior
