He Turned Away

35 Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” Matthew 26

Sometimes in our lives we feel just like Peter we feel so sure of ourselves but lets remember Jesus knows us better. That night when Jesus was taken away all of His disciples turned away but Jesus at this time zeroed in on Peter there’s a little Peter in us all but Jesus knows what’s needed to get our focus back on Him, doing times of stress we tend to turn away from the Lord especially if our prayers aren’t answered as quickly as we had hoped they would be. But God is always aware of what we’re going through and He will never turn away from us I truly love this scripture

Mark 16

. But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”

Jesus makes sure that Peter knows that He hasn’t forgotten him even though he turned away and denied Him! Our God is so awesome He will let nothing separate us from Him Hallelujah He’ll keep running after us.

Why We Suffer?

As believers the word of God is clear even if you’ve been taught that we want yes we will according to the word

John 15:19 The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you.

Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me.

The Cross represents terrible suffering and Jesus endured it all to give us eternal life

The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all

Psalms 34:19

Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.

1 Peter 4:1

For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him.

So as we go through the difficulties of life let us always remember what Jesus went through and
 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy  awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Hebrews 12:2

Patient

21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.

Luke 24:21

We so often are like the disciples we Expect Jesus to do things the way we want Him to but Jesus knows what’s best for us. His redemption works even though it was different than expected

13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem.

Even though they were going in a different direction than they should have been Jesus went after them! We don’t have to worry about our detours Jesus is aware He also runs after us when we take detours  because of His great love for us He also waits on us to get the wisdom and knowledge He offers. What and awesome Saviour we have so let us wait on Him for the changes we need and desire for He will surely help us.

Rest

The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance.

Acts 12:6

In this difficult situation Peter was sleeping 😴! How can we rest in difficult situations? We can rest that same way all we have to do is Hold On to the promises of God. This was not the first time Peter was in a difficult situation,and we to have been in many difficulties but God

The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;

Psalm 34:19

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:26

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

1 John 5:14

And since we know that He hears us we should trust Him and rest God is faithful and He always makes a way out for us

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

God’s word is our sure foundation

Pray

Even if you think you don’t know how to pray you can and God will hear you. Just pray Lord have mercy please He already knows your needs just pray Lord have mercy please Jesus Christ came and died and rose again to help us and to set us free! It’s horrible being caught up in addiction of any kind so please pray with me for God to help his people get free my heart is so heavy thinking about them they did not wake up one day and say I want to be addicted to heroin crack or meth. Then I’m praying for all of the Veterans they are caught up after all they’ve been through serving this country! Lord have mercy please it’s time for us to pray God is able and willing to help us all He loves us so

Psalm

Be Still

Usually we only quote and share Jeremiah 29:11 but I want to call your attention to Jeremiah 29:1~10 God is encouraging his people to settle down let your sons and daughters get married build your homes plant your gardens work for the peace and prosperity of the city,  In other words get comfortable for  you will be here for awhile! In the midst of our hard places we want out as soon as possible but God’s timing is so different from ours. God also told them to pray and so should we  while waiting on God’s time to be fulfilled, it’s so hard to be still while waiting on God we feel we must be doing something but most of the time what we do is make a mess!

We also feel like God has forgotten us but that is never going to happen He loves us to much! For then comes the reassuring promise of Jeremiah 29:11

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes His plans for us are greater than what we’re going through right now so be still and let God do what He has planned the end results will be wonderful.
