Catching up moment-1
Matthew 14:28 “And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.”
The big break is another adjective to use for “catching up moment”. In life we will all have a catching up moment. Solomon calls it time and chance. Hear him:
Ecclesiastes 9:11 “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race [is] not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
God is true and fair to everyone of us. He is no respecter of persons. No matter who you are, God will make sure you have your own time and chance. He will bring opportunities our way to give us the big break we need in life.
The irony however is that most people always miss their time and chance. Many don’t even see it as an opportunity of a life time. They are careless and lackadaisical about it.
One reason many miss their time and chance is because it happens during crisis. It always comes camouflaged as “danger” or trouble.
In this story, Peter and the other disciples were together but he was the only one that recognise his time and chance. Peter stepped into the big break.
In our focal scripture, Peter saw the opportunity for him to walk on water just as Jesus was doing. He asked Jesus if he can join him and Jesus obliged him.
Life is all about making use of catching up moments; taking our “time and chance” when they show up because they must show up. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says “…time and chance happeneth to them all.”
The issue is this; Why don’t men make use of their catching up moments? Several reasons are responsible for this but let’s look at a few:
1. LACK OF PREPARATION: Many don’t make use of this moment because they are not prepared for it.
