But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried, saying, ‘Lord save me!” Matthew 14:30.

You have to love Peter, the disciple who dared to walk on water. He's so much like all of us. When things get really scary, we desperately plead for God's help. Our Father is quick to intervene -  - even if it means letting us experience some of the not-so-pleasant consequences of our actions. After all, the Bible doesn't say pray when you're in trouble. It tells us life will go a lot better if we "pray without ceasing." So talk to God throughout the day. Discuss the little decisions and the big challenges. Allow His small, still voice to encourage and guide you. When you stay in ongoing contact with the Holy Spirit, your fears will diminish. You'll know bone deep that "your God is with you wherever you go." And, as God said in Joshua 1:9, that's a very strong motivation to be "bold and courageous" no matter what comes your way.
