Jesus Walks on the Water
Peters faith must not have been that strong. The only time I`ve ever been afraid is before I knew the Lord. But I have the Lord and I am not afraid.

I believe Lesa got it right when she said that we need to keep our eyes on Jesus. It is true that when I put God first in my thoughts and keep in mind that whatever I am doing, I am doing for Him, it turns out right, every time.

When the wind of doubt breaks the eye contact, then he starts to sink. Eye contact with Jesus taht`s what we need to keep at all times.

Peter fell when he was not focused and did not believe fully in Jesus, without any doubts. Peter became distracted with troubling earthly events ''strong winds'', lost trust and did not have full faith in Jesus. It is wrong to be afraid when we do not seek Jesus and if we do not have full trust and faith in Jesus.

because he took his eyes off of Jesus. when we take our eyes off of the Lord in our lives we sink and loose sight of him and we can not continue. If we keep our eyes on the Lord the we can move forward and grow in him.It is wrong to be afraid when we are not trusting Jesus. Everyone is afraid sometimes and thats ok but when u are not trusting God then u have to make sure you look to him to help you get things right.

Peter started to sink because his faith started to falter.Fear is wrong when you let it take from you your faith in God, your faith in yourself, and your faith in those who care for or about you.

As soon as fear entered Peter, his faith diminished. If you`re faith is strong enough, you will not have any fear, and therefore, you can trust and have faith that your Heavenly Father will always do what is best. Fear is a destroyer of faith. The Bible says to fear God...I just don`t like that word. Fear to me is negativity. Reverence the Lord, I like much better. To me fear is the work of the devil. By revering God, and having faith in all He does, brings you so much closer to Him, and allows you to move mountains, so to speak.

Jesus Walks on the Water

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat, and to go ahead of him to the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. After he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into the mountain by himself to pray. When evening had come, he was there alone. But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, distressed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. In the fourth watch of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It's a ghost!" and they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying "Cheer up! I AM! Don't be afraid."
Peter answered him and said, "Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters."
He said, "Come!"
Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and said to him, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?" When they got up into the boat, the wind ceased. Those who were in the boat came and worshiped him, saying, "You are truly the Son of God!"
When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret. When the people of that place recognized him, they sent into all that surrounding region, and brought to him all who were sick, and they begged him that they might just touch the fringe of his garment. As many as touched it were made whole.
