‘When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”
“Well, they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets”
Then He asked them, Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
“Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in Heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being..”
Matthew 16: 1-17
Your life. Your faith. Your love for God…
All because God choose to show himself to us.
Jesus told Peter, “You are blessed, because my Father in Heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being..” (Mt 16:17)
How amazed and astonished must Simon have felt at that moment..?
How amazed and astonished does that make me feel..?
God chose to reveal Himself to us…
To me. To you..
The God of this whole universe, has blessed us with knowing Him.
How He loves us.
Dear Heavenly Father, to know and be reassured that my life.. my faith, and my desire to know You more is not by chance, fills me with such thanksgiving and hope. To see the words You said to Simon, is such a treasure and I thank You so so much for revealing yourself to me..
Thank You for Your grace. Thank You that my life is continually being cleansed and renewed for You great glory, that I would be a light to those who are searching for your great hope and salvation..
How I pray I would be an extension of Your love to those who cross my path today…
I love You, Jesus..
In Your Name, I pray,
Live in Love,
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works so, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do..”
Ephesians 2: 8-10
