Walk On Your Water

22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. 24 But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. 25 Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” 28 And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You,command me to come to You on the water.” 29 So He said, “Come.”And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.’

Usually when you read Matthew 14:22-29, you tend to focus on the fact that the Lord and Peter did the impossible; they walked on water. And though amazing, we leave it there. We push it aside as we think to ourselves, ‘Great story! Whoo- hoo! Up top Jesus! But I’ll never be able to walk on water.’ And we walk away from the Word unchanged. But let’s look at it from a different perspective. Yes, they walked on the water, but what if you can too?

Go Time

In verses 23 and 24, we find Jesus coming out of a time of prayer. If you’re a pray-er, then you know that oftentimes when you come out from under that prayer anointing, you’re usually led to put into action what you got out of prayer; in that it’s go time.
