Walk On Water

On an angry sea named Galilee a group of frightened men, near exhaustion, labored in vain to reach safety.  The disciples felt cold, wet, and feared greatly for their lives.

What happened next

Just then, one of these men, Peter, lifted up his head and looked out over the raging waves.  At first, he thought he saw an apparition, but then Jesus said, “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.”

God’s voice

Instantly, Peter’s heart leapt.  Where there was hopelessness, the future apostles’ faith grew as he gazed upon his Lord and Savior.  Moreover, by faith, Peter said, “Lord, if it be thou, bid me to come to thee on the water.”  Jesus simply said, “Come”. Without thinking, Peter stepped out of the boat and on to the waves.  Against everything he knew and what others expected, Peter began to walk on water.

Time for you to walk on water

Finally, as you finish reading these writings, un-bow yourself and fix your eyes upon Jesus.  Though a storm rages about you, Christ says to you, “Be of good cheer; it is I, be not afraid.”  Ask Jesus in your heart, “Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come”.  If your Lord bids you “come”,  take that first step of faith and walk on water.
