Notice He didn’t ask Peter to come only if he thought he could. He simply said, “Come” and expected Peter to obey.
I believe too that the Lord didn’t need Peter to come to Him just for the fun of it. He was giving Peter another opportunity to teach him to further trust. For down the road, when the going got really tough, Peter would look back and remember that it was possible to believe in the Lord and put his trust in Him. And yes, if even for just a moment, even if slightly, Peter did walk on water.
After the resurrection, he would speak to thousands and see them get saved. His faith had grown.
Let us not despise those times when we wonder why the Lord asks us to do simple acts of obedience. As all tests go, they have to be passed in order to be elevated or advanced onto the next grade level.
