It Is I

And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea,
 they were terrified...and
  instantly He spoke to them, saying,
 Take courage! I Am! Stop being afraid!
Matthew 14:26-27 AMP

I love the way the Amplified Bible interprets this scripture.  In most versions Jesus' words are stated "It is I."  That's really enough for me but the words 'I AM' are those that God used to name himself.  Jesus is God. So that is even more meaningful to know that God himself, embodied in Jesus, sees our terror and wants to comfort us and give us courage.
