Walk On Water

But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”

And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”

So He said, “Come.”

— Matt.14:27-29

Things are happening around us good and bad. What we focus on is what will be magnified. If you continue to look at the problem, the problem gets bigger. If you keep your eyes on God, God gets bigger. It’s that easy. YOU make the choice as to what it is you’ll fix your eyes on. 

I went to bed last night with the image of Peter walking on the water. By God’s simple command to “come,” Peter walked out and did what His Savior did! Why then did he begin to sink?

Matthew 14:30 says, “But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!””

What we keep our eyes on will determine our life’s outcome.  

It was easy to see the strong winds and rough waves—Peter had been seeing it all night! The thing that made him rise above natural order was Jesus’ WORD—“Come”. His Word sustained the provision to walk on water. Jesus’ command broke all natural law by causing the waters to firm up with every step taken. It was only when Peter took his gaze off of Jesus that he began to sink. 

Don’t take your eyes off of Jesus. 

His command for you is still “Come”.

Matthew 11:28-30, “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

That spirit of heaviness must be done away with once and for all. How? By keeping your eyes on the Savior. Don’t lose sight of Him. Don’t let go of His Command!

Isaiah 61:3 says, “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.” You are a tree of righteousness! Glorify God by walking in His freedom. Free from all fear. Free from what it may look like. Stay focused and fixed on His Word and begin to walk in the supernatural!
