GET OUT OF THE BOAT!
When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. 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 Jesus said, "Come!" Matthew 14:26-29
Twelve disciples scared to death in a boat being tossed by the wind and Jesus comes to them walking on water! They had just seen Him feed some 5000 people supernaturally and now having forgotten that miracle they feared for their lives!
When Jesus approached the boat he told Peter to come to Him, something totally impossible for a human being to do, to walk on water. Peter got out of the boat and actually walked on water until he took his eyes off Jesus and became afraid of the waves and began to sink. Peter cried out and Jesus saved him, but the point of the message is this, in order to walk in the supernatural we have to get out of our boats of unbelief!
As disciples of Christ we have to live in the supernatural realm of the Holy Spirit, walking in faith and exercising our God-given gift of faith! Remember He said, "On earth as it is in Heaven!" This is what He was teaching His disciples, how to believe and walk in the miraculous! So, what are you waiting for? Get out of the boat!
"O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him saying, "Truly You are the Son of God." Matthew 14:31-33
