3 Key Lessons You Can Learn From Jesus Walking On Water

As we come to celebrate Easter, we recognize the resurrection power that is found in Jesus Christ. Not even the ultimate end, death, can hold him down. But this was not the only show of miraculous power in the lifetime of Jesus. He also walked on water! Whilst this was a remarkable feat, it teaches us a lot more about the character and nature of Christ than you'd think. Patrick Mabilog at Christian Today highlights 3 key things we can learn from this event. 

1. Jesus knows about our storms
"It's amazing how Jesus somehow knew that the disciples were caught in a storm that could have very well been the end of their lives. Sometimes when we go through "storms" of our own we think that this one might have slipped under Jesus' radar. But if you're going through a storm today, Jesus is aware of it. He knows everything that's going on in your life and understands and sees your suffering."

2. Doubt will only cause us to sink
"Some accounts show us how Peter asked to walk to Jesus in the same manner as well. The first few steps worked well for Peter but when he saw the waves, he started to sink. Likewise, our doubt- as harmless as it might seem- could be the very reason we are sinking into despair and hopelessness. That's why faith and complete trust in Jesus is vital as we go through our storms."

3. Jesus helps us complete our journey
"No matter how tough the journey or mission you're on is, Jesus is capable of bringing us through it. Scripture tells us that "and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going." (John 6:21) God has a plan for us but we are in no position to fulfill it. Thankfully Jesus is and He enables us to complete with excellence the plans God has for us."
