    Verses 29-31
    Jesus has called us to come to Him, make no mistake, the road is very rough to get to Him. There are hedges, stumbling blocks, hindrances, etc. but we look up to Him only. If we look around we'll be distracted and sink. When the going is tough, we should cry out to Jesus and He will save us in every situation. Lord Jesus, You are worthy of my trust. I thank You.

    Jesus was showing the disciples that he indeed was God in the flesh as He walked on the water.
    It did not really matter what time of day or night it was, seeing someone walking on the water was something the disciples thought impossible, Jesus did the impossible. His walking on the water was to build faith, that he could also do the impossible and free us from the sin that seperates us from God.
  • Insight 777
    V.24 the ship may be Christianity that is tossed in the tempest of the sea (people that do not agree with the doctrine of Jesus) Jesus walked in the Grace of God upon the sea in peace and love. The Disciples feared that the spirit of grace was not enough to save them. Peter feared the army of opposition even though he had understanding and compassion. Replace doubt with a strong trust in God.

    To Joni G's comment. Matthew Chapter 14: Even in the brightness of day, storm clouds or even just dark clouds can darken a sky. Along with that, the wind on the sea can cause an added difficulty in seeing clearly. It is good to question things but in the end, do not doubt that the Lord our God has given his word freely to man to know Him His Son The Holy Spirit. God Bless you.
