MORNINGTIME 2997
 
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 14:28-31. Isn't it interesting that Peter, who was of little Faith, still had enough Faith to want to go to Jesus, NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES ROILING ON AROUND HIM? Whatever Peter's real reason was to ask Christ to call him out of the boat, he still had enough Faith to ask for the impossible, BELIEVING IT WOULD HAPPEN, and the impossible did happen. Peter, with his eyes on Christ, did what no man had ever done before. The Bible DOES NOT specify any time or distance, so Peter may have walked on water for a second, or maybe strolled around with Christ for 2 minutes, only the Lord, and Peter, know. Either way, Peter had enough Faith to walk on water, and Jesus said he was of "little faith". This is a warning to us Believers today, who may or may not consider our faith to be small, or otherwise, TO STEP UP AND START BELIEVING FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE. BEWARE, this is not a call to start asking Christ to let us walk on water or bend steel with our bare hands, but to Trust Christ and Grow in Faith, to such a degree that when Christ does give an "impossible" command, we don't think twice about it, we just do it. We can do it in, through, and because of Christ, as He builds our Faith NOW, that when the day comes to Believe for the Impossible, we're ready with NO hesitation. And yes, those days ARE coming, to feed the multitudes, to heal the sick, to believe for water when there is none. All that Christ did, His Body, His Church, WILL do. Are you practicing Growing In Faith today that you'll be ready then, to, Be Blessed?
