Summary

How to walk on water if you’re in the middle of a storm? You have to be willing to do what Jesus wants you to and get out of the boat!

Introduction

Have you ever been water skiing? Or surfing? Or ice skating? It takes courage to step on the water, or to catch a wave and let it take you, or to step onto the ice rink. I’ve only ever attempted the latter and fallen flat on my face!

How to Walk on Water? Get Out of the Boat!

But if you’re going to achieve any of those things, you have to take the step of faith at some point. There’s no point in standing on the shore with water skis on. You have to get out on the water. A surfboard might make a fashion statement, but it’s of little use unless you’re going to plunge into the ocean and surf the waves. Ice skates make terrible shoes! You have to get out on the ice.

Take a Step of Faith

Sometimes, God uses the storms of life to encourage us to take a step of faith. If my line of legal work hadn’t changed beyond all recognition, I might still not be a Salvation Army officer. And being made redundant probably pushed me to make the right decision to obey God’s calling rather than prevaricating over whether I should or not. If you want to know how to walk on water, then the first step is to get out of the boat.

Is It Possible to Walk on Water?

Peter would never have attempted to walk on water had it not been for the storm. The storm caused him to react in faith and to experience a special outpouring of God’s power. If you feel you’re in a storm at the moment, and you want to know how to walk on water, pause and ask God what he wants you to do. And be willing to do it. It’s time to get out of the boat!
