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.

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

Situations and Circumstances

God will allow us to go into some deep and dark places “Whew”! Where we cannot seem to find any peace.But,God will never leave us there! The situation or circumstance you’re in right    now God has allowed. And even though you don’t like it or understand praise 1it,and want out “Now”! God can and will make it all work out for His Glory and your good. Sometimes other Christians will come to you with well meaning scripture, but it’s just not the word you need at this time and place in your life. No matter how painful and confusing this place is. it is where God wants you for now. I’ve learned and I’m learning it’s more important to obey God than man. When you know you’ve heard from God, regardless to how the situation or circumstance looks. Let nothing and no one move you from what God has promised you ! Every bit of this is necessary or God would not have allowed it.

 

1 Peter 1:6  Hebrews 10:35,36   Wait on the Lord patiently!
