You are Invited

Jesus commanded Peter “Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given Me?” John 18:11

Today you are invited to consider how you would feel if you were Peter. He was trying to help, yet Jesus soundly reprimanded him. Are you aware when God says ‘No – stop’ to you? What does that feel like? How do you respond? How do you feel afterwards when you ignore – or obey? Can you empathise with Peter or do you condemn him? What would you have done? Speak to Jesus about your feelings and listen to His reply.

May God bless you with discernment when you want to rush ahead of Him and give you the wisdom to follow His lead.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
