Walk on Water - Music Monday

It is time to embrace your faith and build up your courage to be like Peter and walk on water. Looking at the bible verses and story of Peter walking on water to remind us that we should want to go farther in our walk.  

In 2016 I am trying to follow God and living fearlessly. This theme is not only affecting my life, but also affecting my life, but it is also affecting my blog. 

Jesus called Peter to live fearlessly and to walk on water. 

25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.  27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”  29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”  31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”  32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” - Matthew 14:25-33 NIV

Faith in God is important, join me as I look at the scripture to the Bible Story of Peter walking on water. . Walking on water is a great illustration of what God wants from us in our walk. 

I both want to be like Peter and I don't all at the same time. I want to be like Peter in the fact that I want to be brave enough to 1) ask to go further in my walk with Jesus.  2) to actually step out in faith and go where Jesus leads. I just don't want Jesus to ask me why I doubted. Probably because I have doubted God and I don't want that to be how I respond to Him.

This all reminds me of the song Walk on Water by Audio Adrenaline. 

"Walk On Water"

Simon Peter won't you put those nets down
follow me I'll lead you out of this town
to a place where no boat has ever been
I will make you a fisher of men

Jesus walked out on the water
said take courage it is me
Peter trusted and he wanted to go farther
so he stepped out on the sea

If I keep my eyes on Jesus I can walk on water
If I keep my eyes on Jesus I can walk on water

Just like Peter I want to go farther
tread on the sea and walk on the water
step where he steps and go where he goes
side by side when the sea billows roll
I'll be alright when the wind comes
I'll be alright when the waves come crashing
I'm not afraid for this is my father's world
