Insight from the Song

When we remember the story from Peter when he and the disciples seeing Jesus walking in the water in the dawn of the night, they were so afraid that it's a ghost. But when Jesus asked who believe that it is Him, Peter is the most faithful and asked Jesus to let him walk in the water.

But it's not the point of this song. When Peter lost his faith, he started to sink. He called upon Jesus and He gave Peter His faithful hand. How many of us sometimes lost our faith a little bit, then we find ourself in a trouble. Don't forget that we have Jesus beside us, ready to lend His powerful hands. Put all your trust in Him, restore your faith in Jesus, because He's always there for us.
