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.
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;
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
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.”
God’s word is our sure foundation

When I think about how Awesome my Father is It blows my mind!
Before He created anything He knew me-He knew me! I was with Him and in Him Before
Before I was on His mind in His heart spirit and soul
Before I was with my great and awesome Creator He knew me and He chose me
He called me Before
I can imagine Him kicking the ground and using the dust to create the first man
I was there with Him in Him Hallelujah
How awesome my God is even now He knows me
Among the billions upon the earth He knows my voice from all of the others
He knows me and loves me greatly He knows my every thought
Even Before I had a thought He knew me while the earth was dark and void and empty He knew me
It’s such a wonderful thing to be known by God and to know His great love!

19 He was then almost one hundred years old; but his faith did not weaken when he thought of his body, which was already practically dead, or of the fact that Sarah could not have children.
God is so amazing! He can truly do anything without regard God is not limited at all even though our faith sometimes weakens. Wow it seems as though Abraham had fantastic and strong faith but we must look at what God brought him through before he got to this place of faith so that he was not moved looking back is good especially doing times of trials because it gives us insight we can also see what God has brought us through. Our faith does grow stronger as we move through the different trials God has prepared for us He knows how much we can bear! I get so excited thinking about the power and authority of God he has taken everything into consideration concerning us so be encouraged today wherever you are in your walk with the Lord knowing that he will never leave or forget you no matter what age you are nor does it matter what condition your body is in God can do great things for you and through you so stand strong and see the amazing things God has planned for you.
Scripture Romans 4:19 GNT
Love in Christ Pat
Jesus loved Lazarus just as He loves us! Can you imagine the restraint Jesus had to use when He got that message from Martha and Mary remember Jesus was flesh and blood like us.When He hears our prayers I believe He has to restrain Himself, because He’s all about doing His Father’s will.
For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.
John 6:38 NLT
But if we wait on Him we’ll get the answer that’s best for our situation, His timing is so different from ours and we do have problems waiting.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord . “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
Isaiah 55:8 NLT
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
LAM 3:22-23 ESV
God is great and nothing is to hard for Him! So hold on God will show up on time!

The two disciples heard him say this and went with Jesus. Jesus turned, saw them following him, and asked, “What are you looking for?”
John 1:37-38 GNB
What a question! When we accepted Jesus as our Saviour what were we really expecting? I’m sure as we ponder that question we will come to the conclusion that following Jesus Christ is not exactly what we expected! But as we grow in the Lord
our expectations change. But what we were looking for is someone who will do things our way ,right ☺ but as we walk with the Lord we learn that is not the way. Sometimes disappointment sets in and really cloud our view of of Saviour and His ways ! Thank God for the Holy Spirit for He will surely bring our thoughts and desires around to what we should be looking for, and that is to do His will regardless to what we are really looking for in Christ Jesus. How Awesome God is and just to know Him is Amazing!
Father help us to desire you and your will Father help us to know you truly are who we are looking for in Jesus name Amen
Love In Christ Pat .
