This message is taken from St Matthew Chapter 14 verses 25-33 of the King James version of the Bible. And in the fourth watch of the night, that would have been between three and six O'clock in the morning, Jesus went unto His disciples walking on the sea. When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "it is a spirit; or apparition GK. Phantasma or ghost. And they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, BE OF GOOD CHEER; IT IS I; BE NOT AFRAID". We read in Exodus 3:14 "And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."
This is a Divine name, as in GK. eg§ eimi, I AM. And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water". And He (Jesus) said, "Come". This is just like the Gospel call, to step out of the boat in faith, regardless of walking on the sea, and the boisterous wind... a real miracle walk! Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." St Matthew11:28. And when Peter came down out of the ship, HE WALKED ON THE WATER TO GO TO JESUS. He harkened to the call COME He acted in faith, stepped out in faith and started his miracle walk with JESUS! But then something happened, he took his eyes off Jesus and looked at the temptation and problems around him. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; this is how we all feel when we look at the world around us and take our eyes off JESUS! 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?" How wonderful Jesus is, as soon as Peter called "Lord save me" IMMEDIATELY JESUS DID! "And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God." If you have never heard the Word of Jesus, "Come unto me" why not come to Him now, take a step out of the boat in faith, and walk with Jesus; pray:
"Lord Jesus, I come to you now, with all of my sins and burdens. I accept you died on the cross for my sins, you shed your blood for me, you went to the grave, and the third day you rose again from the dead, and now you are alive! I ask you to save me and come into my heart and life and make me a new creature. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen".
Now you have responded to Jesus Gospel call "COME". Start your "New creation" MIRACLE WALK.
Perhaps, some of you reading this have taken your eyes off Jesus during your MIRACLE WALK, and looked at the boisterous problems around you. Your tribulations, burdens, sickness, your lost one's. You are beginning to sink!! Peter called "LORD SAVE ME" and IMMEDIATELY JESUS DID! Jesus loves you, call upon His name!
Jesus said "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" Matthew 11:28.
