Walking on Water

Michael Hare - December 2010

I had a dream about walking on water. I was on a lake with other people and on the lake was one of those platforms that kids get on and then jump from into the water. One man just stepped off the platform and started walking across the water. My thought (in the dream) was that if I imagined that the water was solid that I could walk on it, as well.

I then imagined that the water was kind of like fiberglass (with the crisscrossing fiber) and I stepped onto the surface. I sank up to my ankles but didn't sink any further. It was like walking on a very mushy surface. I don't remember anyone else attempting to take a stroll on the lake.

As I remember, the other man didn't even sink; he was right on top of the water.

Note from David: The natural truth here is that we must believe to do the "greater works" Jesus said we would do. Imagining that He lives in us to do those works is biblical. We must see, by faith, Jesus living in us and it will be so. {2Co.3:18} But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.

The spiritual truth is we must believe to walk above the curse of the Word, which is the water, in order to live above it.
