The familiar story of Jesus walking on the water is found in Matt. 14:22-33. I’m still amazed at Peter’s request for Jesus to bid him come and walk on the water. Of course, we know what happened.
We wouldn’t literally try to “walk on water,” but I do feel that Jesus wants us to exercise our faith especially when our boat is rocked with raging waves of worry, trouble or fear and it’s ready to capsize. He calls to us, “Come.” We need to do just that, and when we feel like we’re sinking in the water, know that Jesus’ hand is outstretched and ready to save.
No matter what stormy waters are buffeting you at the present or may come in the future, trust the One who says, “Come walk with Me on the water.” He’ll hold you up and see you through your storm.
“And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” v. 31
Don’t doubt – only trust the One who can calm a raging storm and bring peace to a troubled heart.
