Matthew 14:27-32 But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
"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.
The first thing we note about this passage is that we only want to be where Jesus bids us come. There's no way Peter could walk on the water naturally speaking. But Peter did not really walk on the water, even though he did walk on the water. He actually walked on the word of Jesus. And that meant walking on the water. Regardless of the dark night, regardless of the storm, just keep walking toward Jesus!
And of course, the second thing we see is that even when he was walking toward Jesus, when he took his eyes off Jesus and began to look at the wind, he began to sink. Peter couldn't walk on the water whether there was wind or no wind. The wind had no power over the word spoken to him. But he began to fear that it did. And so he began to sink. Now we all give Peter a hard time, but he was the only one of the disciples who walked on the water. And he had enough sense about him, that when he did start to sink, he cried out to the One who could help him, "Lord, save me!" He cried out to the One who had authority over the wind. He cried out to Him as Lord.
What about you? Did you start out good and then somewhere along the way, the wind just began to blow so hard, and you started looking at it, and just began to sink? Get your eyes back on Jesus. He is Lord. Live in His Lordship, where all things are possible.
