TO WALK ON WATER; GET OUT OF THE BOAT

TEXT: MATTHEW 14: 25- 29
“During the forth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified, it’s a ghost they said and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them, take courage! It is I, don’t be afraid. Lord if it’s you Peter replied, tell me to come to you on the water. Come he said. Then Peter got DOWN OUT OF THE BOAT, WALKED ON THE WATER and came towards Jesus.”
Jesus proved wrong the law of gravity by walking on water, nobody has ever seen such thing before, but with God all thing are possible. The power of God sustained and kept Jesus to walk on water. His disciples could not believe what they saw, they thought it was a ghost walking on water, when Jesus told them it was him, Peter called on Jesus to invite him to join him on water, and Jesus told him to come. Peter never believed it was possible for anybody to walk on water, not to talk of him walking on water! He never believed he could do the unusual until he got out of the boat and joined Jesus on water.
The potentials that God has deposited in you will not start manifesting until you make the move to do something about it. You don’t need to wait until everything is complete and perfect before you will embark on your God given vision. Do not let lack of resources or fund to restrict you from fulfilling your destiny, you can start where you are and with what you have. The scripture says we should not despise the days of little beginning (Zechariah 4:10). Don’t be trapped in a spot with fear of failure, for you to do the unusual. You need to get out of your comfort zone and move towards the area of “risk and insecurity” that is challenging you. If Peter had not gotten out of the boat, he wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do the unusual by walking on water!
Staying in the boat is much safer than going to walk on water that could cause him to get drowned, but he decided to move out of his comfort zone to do the supernatural. That dream that seems too big for you to achieve is achievable, if you make effort to move out of the boat (comfort zone) and call on Jesus to help you walk through the water of impossibilities so that you can fulfill your dream.

A failure is not somebody that tried but failed, a failure is a person who refused to try at all. Don’t get discouraged, get out of your comfort zone, see beyond any impossibility and make the resolution to achieve your dreams.
