MORNINGTIME 2993
 
And straightway Jesus (told) his disciples to GET into A SHIP, AND to GO before him UNTO THE OTHER SIDE, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But THE SHIP WAS now in the midst of the sea, TOSSED WITH WAVES: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; BE NOT AFRAID. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, BID ME come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And WHEN PETER WAS COME down out of the ship, HE WALKED ON THE WATER, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind BOISTEROUS, he was afraid; and BEGINNING TO SINK, he cried, saying, LORD, SAVE ME. and immediately JESUS stretched forth his hand, and CAUGHT HIM, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? Matthew 14:22-31.  Jesus SENT them to the other side of the lake. ALL THE TIME, THEY WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS WILL, IN TOTAL OBEDIENCE. Satan wants to kill all 12 at one time. He is ONLY allowed to scare them. But all they know was that they were about to die. To them, it looks like Jesus sent them on a suicide mission. But when they saw Jesus IN THE MIDST of the Problem, Peter calls out in one great moment of FAITH, "Lord, bid me to come to you and walk on the teeth of death itself", AND HE DID. Peter, knowing he was in the middle of God's Will, called out to Christ, AND STEPPED OUT OF THE "BAD SITUATION", AND INTO "DEATH" ITSELF, throughly Trusting Christ with his very Life. THEN, he had a moment of hesitation and fear tried to rise as he sank. Again he Called out to Christ, and was saved. But for a moment, he KNEW he was in God's Will, and he Walked VICTORIOUSLY in it, to, Be Blessed.
