In Matthew 14:22-32, Peter was curious to do as Jesus did. At first, he believed that he could walk on the water because he trusted in Jesus. However on his way he began to sink and this is what happens when we take our eyes of the finisher and author of our faith- Jesus. This was a down-time for Peter. He was helpless. He began to sink because he started doubting that he is really walking on water, he doubted that Jesus could save him. He trusted in his own strength and power. He lost the zeal because he has simple lost faith in Christ, The Saviour.
In that way you can reverse your downtime and enjoy your up-time. Always put your faith in the power and character of God. Never doubt Him! Let nothing come between you and God because He is more than able to help you reach your finishing line. So are you having a downtime? It's time to reconnect!
