“Shortly before dawn, Jesus went out to them, walking on the water.” (Matthew 14:25 NIV)
“Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. ‘You of little faith,’ he said, ‘why did you doubt?'” (Matthew 14:31 NIV)
Jesus walked on the water. Peter did too until he realized what he was doing and started sinking.
Do you know why he sank? He lost faith to do it. I think he realized he was not supposed to be able to do it and got scared. Even though Jesus was right there, waiting for him to come to him.
If Jesus called you to come, would you walk on the water? I would and I can’t swim. But I have confidence that Jesus would not let me drown.
But what if the devil called you to walk on water? Would you trust him? Not me. He has tried too many times to take me out as it is. I won’t hand him an opportunity to try again. Besides, I know my masters voice. I follow His lead. A strangers voice, the devil, I do not follow.
I found a song last night called, “Wavewalker” by Citizen Way:
“I’m a wavewalker.Wavewalker by Citizen Way
I’m dancing on water.
When the devil tried to shake me,
I just pray harder.
Even in my darkest hour,
Got Holy Ghost power.
When I keep my eyes upon You, Jesus,
I’m a wavewalker.”
My God walks on water. He will walk through the storm to find you. Then He will hold you up so you can walk on the waves life throws at you. Whatever storms have come up in your life, we have a water walking Savior to hold us up. So if you have a storm in your life, start dancing on the waves. Let Jesus take care of you.
Have a blessed day.
