Here, Peter is being Peter again โ€” but we’re so here for this most of extra of apostles.ย 

Exhausted, afraid and adrift upon a turbulent sea, the most challenging words somehow fall out of Peter’s mouth: “Tell me to come to you on the water.” Jesus obliged, and Peter simply obeyed in response. Thus the impossible happened โ€” until Peter saw the wind and became afraid.

There is much to learn from Peter’s step of faith and obedience to act upon what he had heard, as there is in his faltering. Peter began to sink because he took his eyes off Jesus, and looked instead at the troubles around him. It was not water that swamped Peter, but doubt and fear.

Have you asked the Lord to give you a command? Are you walking by faith and in obedience, or looking at the storm? Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
