And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
A lot of people think there are two ways to live your life. Sinking or swimming. But for every child of God theres a third way. A BETTER way. A supernatural way of living. When Peter received the green light to walk on the water, he walked on the water! It was the spoken Word of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, that made Peter able to do what no man had ever done.
Here are the three ways people live their lives.
SINKING- A life full of fear. Constantly struggling and barely staying a float. A life that is emotionally and circumstantially driven. The worst way to life your life.
SWIMMING-You can live life where you get to where you have to be, taking God at His Word on occasion. But there will be some areas your mind won't be able to comprehend so you begin to sink in certain areas. Most people live their Christian lives here. Unstudied, more aware of what they see with their natural eyes, barely staying a float.
WALK ON WATER- This third way is not only the BEST way, it’s the way God has ordained every believer to live life. The Word of God and faith in the Word of God is what will make you walk on water. When you walk on the Word of God you disengage from the symptoms and dismiss the roaring seas. When you take God at His Word and stay fixed on Jesus, you’ll be able to do what no other man has done. Studying His Word and applying it to your daily life will cause you to live a supernaturally stress free, sickness free, hassle free life.
God gave all dominion to Adam (Genesis 1:28). Adam blew it and gave it to Satan (Genesis 3). Satan’s head was crushed when Jesus came (Rev. 1:18, Matt. 28:18). That power was given to Jesus and transferred to you and I (John 20:21). So the power to live above the powers of darkness is readily available to every believer. But why aren't more people living a life walking on water? Because they don’t believe.
"These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”(Mark 16:17-18) So if they believe, those signs shall follow them. Which in turn means if you don't believe, they won't follow you. How much you dare to trust and have faith to believe is the level of supernatural you’ll unlock. The more you trust and believe, the more you’ll be able to walk supernaturally.
It begins at the Word of God. TRUST AND BELIEVE WHAT YOU READ. If you don't read it you’ll perish.
