Christian Counseling to Help Others ‘Walk On Water’
And when Peter arose from the belly of the boat, he saw Christ in the distance upon the sea, walking on water. He called out to Christ and Christ beckoned him forward. Peter arose and walked to him but the moment he took his eyes off of his master, he began to sink. Christ then gently lifted him once again upon the water.
Christian Counseling can also help others “walk on water” if one keeps his eye on Christ. Peter was called by Christ and despite the “impossible” demand, Peter did walk on water, and continued to, only until his faith was shaken and his eyes turned away from Christ. Spiritual advisers need to remind their spiritual children that if Christ summons them to any task, great or small, he will give them the ability to accomplish that goal.
How many times do we fear the calling of the Lord and only see the storm and the deep sea? Yet what we do not understand is when our Lord calls us to a particular vocation, he gives us the ability to overcome any hardships. As long we keep our eye on the Lord, we will be able to “walk on water” and accomplish any feat.
Hence if it is a ministry call, a marriage vocation, or a particular state of life that Christ wills for us, then we must submit our will to our master and as Peter, walk upon the water to greet our Lord–and if we do, we will not drown but walk upon the water.
I also listed two other pictures from this event in Christ’s life. They were just too simply beautiful and inspiring to leave out.
