We all have free will. Peter did good and then he doubted god and thus sank. And as far as walking on water is concerned. Walking on water,
levetation, manifesting objects from thin air. All this stuff is not exclusive to christianity, Jesus and other christain saints. The hindu Veda's
say that these "flowers along the path" are attained when you have reached certain stages of spiritual enlightenment, but should NOT be the goal,
the goal is union with god, and an aspiring Yogi should not strive for anything less then that.
By the way There are litterally thousands of stories of various Yogi's that can do very much the same things as jesus, raise the dead, heal people,
among many other things. This world is a dream of gods. There is a story about a yogi i forget his name, but he is naked having renounced even his
loincloth in the search for god. He wanders into a Muslim, yes MUSLIM tent with women in it and several men. Now you can imagine the uproar. One of
the muslim men takes a sword and cuts off the yogi's arm. The yogi just turns around and showing no sign of pain walks away leaving his arm behind.
The muslim is so ashamed for what he has done he grabs the arm and runs after the yogi and gives him his arm back. He puts the arm back in its socket
and it is fully healed! then he blesses the muslim and walks away. The muslim later on becomes a disciple of that yogi.
Dont limit yourself to one narrow perspective. There are many paths to god, and the fruits along that path seem to be great, but what is even greater
is uniting with god himself.
And by the way i dont think that just asking god for faith and waiting is the best way to go. God helps those who help themselves. You must STRIVE
with all your heart and strength for god. GIVE yourself to him and meditate, pray, and give every action you do to god. God only reveals himself to
those who truly deserve it.
Strive for truth settle for nothing less.
