“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. Matthew 14:28-29
Peter took a “Walk of Faith” and decided to trust Jesus would allow him to walk on the water. When he cried out, Jesus immediately responded to him with open arms. See its makes our Lord happy when we have the faith in him.
But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Matthew 14:30
But then Peters human mind started to kick in, wait were not supposed to be able to walk on water, and he lost his faith and immediately began to sink. Jesus said that all things are possible if you have faith in Him.
Notice Peter still remembered to call out to The Lord to save him, even though Peters fall was his own fault due to his lack of faith, Jesus is still willing to save us.
Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
Notice it says “Immediately” Jesus reached out for him. Jesus didn’t let him struggled in the water for a while. He took compassion on Peter and saved him immediately.
The Jesus taught him the valuable lesson, its faith that activates Gods miracles, its doubt that stops them. If you’re going to be taking a “Walk of Faith” today make sure you are all in with God
And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:32-33
The Disciples seen how Jesus controlled the winds, walked on the water, and saved Peter, they knew Jesus is truly the Son of God. Do you truly know Jesus? And believe his is the Messiah?
Remember during your daily “Walk of Faith” trust in the Lord and it will activate Gods power in you. And if your drowning, call upon The Lord and he will save you immediately just as he saved Peter in Jesus Name Amen
