Your Eyes of Faith



…So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink.

(Matthew 14:29-30 NLT)


 Jesus invited Peter to get out of the boat and walk on the water. Peter didn’t hesitate to accept. He stepped out of the boat and onto the water…he was walking on water…he was actually walking on the water toward Jesus.

He was, until…he saw the wind and the waves and became afraid. He was no longer focused on Jesus. He looked at his circumstance and allowed fear and doubt to rob him of the faith to walk on water. Peter made the big, huge mistake of taking his focus, his thoughts and his “eyes of faith” off Jesus.

Peter literally walked on water…by faith…because Jesus said he could. Although we may not be called upon to “walk on water”, we are called upon to “walk by faith”.

Keep your “eyes of faith” on Jesus.

  1. A beautiful post. Thank you. 🙂


  2. This is great!!! Thank you so much for posting. I had to miss Bible study this morning to take my mother to the hospital again… You’re absolutely right though… When we take our focus off Jesus we begin to doubt and thus open the door to failures or disappointments… Hope you have a blessed week! 😀


Thank you for your thoughts.
