Matthew 14: 28-30 ” ‘Lord, if it’s You,’ Peter replied, ‘tell me to come to You on the water.’ ‘Come,’ He said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘ Lord, save me!’ “

Just like Jesus, Peter walked on the water.  Just like Jesus, Peter’s faith was great enough to keep him afloat.  But unlike Jesus, Peter took his eyes off his Savior and onto the situation around him and he began to flounder.  When the storm is swirling around you…keep your eyes on Jesus.  When fear promises to overwhelm you…keep your eyes on Jesus.  For as long as Peter stayed focused on the Lord, he walked above the fray.
