22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.Matthew 14:22-23
Perhaps, I should begin with a warning: DO NOT TRY THIS AT THE LAKE OR RIVER BECAUSE IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO WALK ON WATER!
Jesus can walk on water because He is GOD, and besides, He created water. But Peter is not God and he did not create water. So how did Peter walk on water? Remember, walking on water is impossible.
The disciples are in the middle of the lake rowing and going nowhere. There’s a big storm, and they are afraid. Their situation looks impossible. Your situation may look the same. You may say, “I can’t go to the mission field; that’s impossible.” “I cannot give more for others to go; that’s impossible.”
How did Peter do the impossible? Peter asked Jesus, “Bid me come unto thee.” Jesus said, “COME,” and Peter walked on water, doing the impossible. You, too, can do the impossible. You won’t be able to walk on water, but you can GO and you can GIVE. Ask GOD! That’s what Peter did.
