Matt. 14:25 About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water.
The Sea of Galilee is somehow both smaller and larger than expected. Most of the time it is a calm and peaceful place, the favourite spot for many who visit this land. But the locals tell of how a storm can turn it violent in a hurry. Here Jesus travelled between various towns. Here Jesus spoke with authority to calm the wind and waves. Here Jesus walked upon the water, and Peter by faith did the same. Where in your life might Jesus be calling you to step out in faith, even if it seems ridiculous or impossible?
