‘ . . . . Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water “ . . .’ Matthew 14:28 NEV


Peter didn’t walk on the water all by himself, he did it with Jesus. Today Christ invites you to walk with Him and experience His miracles. Why don’t we see more of them in our lives?



1/. WE DON’T PRAY AND BELIEVE GOD FOR THEM. Jesus said, ‘If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you’ – John 15:7 NKJV. Your prayers give God an invitation, an entry point and a channel through which His miraculous power can flow to change your circumstances. But you have to pray and believe Him to do it!


2/. WE THINK THE DAY OF MIRACLES IS PAST. The Scriptures declare, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever’ – Hebrews 13:8 NKJV. In reality there never has been ‘a day of miracles,’ there’s only a God of miracles, and He never changes. So don’t limit Him!


3/. WE ALLOW SIN TO SABOTAGE OUR CONFIDENCE. John writes, ‘If our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him’ – 1 John 3:21-22 NIV.


4/. WE LOOK AT THE SITUATION INSTEAD OF THE SAVIOUR AND OUR FAITH FALTERS. When Jesus told Peter “Why did you doubt?” – Matthew 14:31 NIV. He was saying, ‘Don’t allow this storm to overwhelm you. I’m right here with you. Your problem is under My feet, therefore it’s under your feet too. Just keep your eyes on Me, keep walking by faith and stick to the plan.


Knowing the Truth compiled by Rev. A. Hocking

I heard a story the other day about a man who came into a large sum of money.   Like most people would, he gave up his job, bought a new house, a new car, went on a world cruise and so on. 


All went well for a few years until he became critically ill.  He gave the doctors huge amounts of money and they did all they could for him, but eventually he was told there was nothing more that could be done and he should prepare himself for death.


Until this time he had not had much time for church or God, but suddenly realising he would be facing his Maker, he thought he had better get ready!  He called the local minister and offered him a large sum of money if he would guarantee him a place in Heaven. “My friend, you cannot buy a place in heaven”, the minister said.  “There is only one way into Heaven and that is through Jesus Christ who paid the entrance fee on the Cross of Calvary”.


The price is paid.  Heaven is free.   However, you need to get your ‘ticket’.  Pray this prayer:   “Lord Jesus, thank you that you died for me on the Cross. Please forgive me my sin and help me to live for you from now on.”    That’s it!  Going to Heaven is so simple!  You can’t buy your way there; you can’t earn your way in.  You simply accept what Jesus did and you are guaranteed a place.   Get your ‘ticket’ today – you never know when you will need it!
