Could it be that Peter walked on the word and not on water? Matthew 14:28-33

Before Jesus spoke, it was water, after Jesus said “Come” and Peter stepped out of the boat, it was still water. On account of that Word from the Word Himself, Peter got out of the boat and walked.

The sea was unchanged in its composition, yet Peter walked as if he was on dry ground until he took his eyes of the Word he had heard – the Word that had been spoken to him.

Could it be that you have been praying for a change in the composition of the situation when all you need is a Word from the Lord?

Today, fix your eyes on Jesus, let your perception of the word He has given you be greater in your field of vision than the contrary winds blowing over that situation.

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” ”Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me! “Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:28-33 NIV
