SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. Matthew 14:22
Jesus gave His disciples many lessons in faith, showing them great signs and wonders and many miracles in which He used to validate His position in the earth as One who possessed all power and authority!
The disciples were in the boat tossed by the waves of the sea when Jesus came walking on water. Even after seeing His great power of healing, restoring sight to the blind and raising the dead they were afraid and thought He was a ghost! Jesus spoke to them and said, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."
Everyone knows that walking on water is virtually impossible for any human being to accomplish but Peter asked the question, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water." Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water until he took His eyes off of Jesus and was afraid of the waves and began to sink! "Lord save me!"
And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him,, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" Matthew 14:31
