Subject: April 18th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee upon the waters. Matthew 14.28.

Believers should imitate Peter in being special and in following the Lord first. “And [Jesus] said, Come” (v.29). The Lord’s word is a promise. Without the Lord’s promise it would be a senseless adventure. Some people may accuse Peter of being fond of showing off; but the Lord, far from scolding him, encourages him to come. His promise shows His approval.

People may think it is safer in the boat. There is no need to walk upon the water to follow the Lord. Yet we should realize that the life of a believer is a life of faith. It is easy to have and exercise faith within the framework of a corporate situation, but to have faith individually is hard. As a matter of fact, faith is personal. Peter walks upon the water by faith. And this is commended by the Lord.
