When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, they were all fearful. But then Peter did something so shocking. He said “Lord if it be thou bid me come”. And the Lord said come. Right there and then, Peter jumped down and started going. Peter didn’t say Lord you must understand the storm. Remember they were all fearful. No one wanted to come out of the boat. But Peter chose to be different. You cannot act on God’s word and not be distinguished.
Did you notice that Peter didn’t say Lord if it be thou, calm the storm. He didn’t say Lord let the blood flow cease. He didn’t say, if it be thou, when I go to submit my LPO, let them just push out every other person but me. He didn’t say let me see the man first.
All Jesus said was “come”. And that was sufficient for Peter to come down out of the ship and walk on the water. Praise God! His word is sufficient!
Beloved, when the word of God goes out, the storm is subject to the word. Every word that God has spoken into your life, your challenges will submit to that word. The word that the Lord has spoken concerning you is your destiny and your circumstances will always respond to your destiny. If need be, God will wipe out a whole nation to ensure that your destiny is not aborted. I declare to you today, that your destiny will not be aborted.
Your days of strandedness are over. The word of God has already gone ahead of you. And God told me it will be fulfilled. That word will be fulfilled in your life. They have laughed at you. But get ready, they will celebrate with you.
Ezra 1:1-4, Mark 4:35-40
