Matthew 26:72 KJV
And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
Peter and I have a lot in common. We have both said to The Lord we would always follow Him, then failed at the moment we said for sure we wouldn’t. What’s comforting is that God already knew the moment he would fail, as well as the moment he would come to forgive and reconcile.
I still look at the words, and cringe……”I do not know the man.” I shudder to think of him saying that. Just flat out lying, and then I have to check myself and ponder upon the many times I have said that, with my actions, my words, and my unbelief. Now that I write this I am realizing that every time I doubt Jesus, and what he is able to do, I am basically saying, “I do not know the man.”
No longer do I want to live in denial of Jesus. How about you?
Lord I believe, but help me with my unbelief. Some areas of what you say I am sold out for and I can take it to the bank, but then there are other areas where I am unsure and not trusting in you totally. I desire to trust you with all my life, in every area. Amen.
Romans 1:21 (NASB)
For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Lord help me not to take you for granted, and begin to think I have done all that I have done in and of myself. Let me always remember to give credit where credit is due. To you.
