What is the biblical meaning of walking on water?

According to the bible and the story of Jesus walking on water, it reminds us that, we need to have faith when going through the storms of life and trust that, in all of it, Jesus is still on the thrown and will definitely see us through. Peter walking on water after he told Jesus to allow him to walk has three life lessons:

  • Number one: That in life we need faith in God and trust that he is going to do whatever he promises to do for us. When we lack faith, it is hard to please God. Jesus walked on water because he had faith in God. Peter was able to walk towards Jesus in water because he had faith but started sinking when his focus moved from Jesus to the waves.
  • Number two: Doubt is what made Peter start sinking in water. Doubt is capable of destroying your faith which is tied to the promises that God has for you. When you start to doubt them, then automatically your faith will fail you.
  • Number three: Jesus is always there when you are going through trials and tribulations in life. So when you are going through the winds and waves in life, remember that Jesus prevented Peter from sinking into the water. Jesus is always there to provide a helping hand through life’s most difficult moments.

The miracle of walking on water is what really convinced his disciples that, he was indeed the Messiah, the Son of God. The point that comes out is that fear and faith cannot live in the same body. Because the disciples were terrified of the waves, they didn’t recognize Jesus and thought him to be a ghost.

Jesus was also testing the faith of his disciples and that is why he made sure that the boat was far away from the land, which was their hope before he walked on water. He walked on water to show them that, the very thing they fear like the seething and raging sea, was steps for them to come to him. In real life, this dream can mean that you fear experiences such as illnesses, the death of loved ones, and lack of finances to meet your life goals and there are these experiences which will definitely draw you closer to Jesus.

The other reason Jesus walked on water was to show that he was in command of the elements. After Jesus walked on water, the disciples called him the Son of God, meaning, they recognized the divinity and confessed their faith in him. He commanded the wind and it died down. The questions asked in Matthew 8 and verse 27 was answered in Matthew 14 and verse 32 to 33 where when questioned about walking on water the answer was that Jesus is the Son of God.
