Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: December 9, 2020

I’ve thought on these verses a lot. Peter loved Jesus so much, but in verse 22 he was not speaking the will of God, these things Jesus spoke of had to come to past. It made me reflect on my own life. How many times have I prayed out of the will of God. I know I’ve been out of His will many times and thankfully He has always guided me back, but once there how many prayers that I prayed asking for something lined up with His will? I’m getting better at seeking Him and His will becomes my will, but so much time wasted. I can truly say I am thankful for a lot of unanswered prayers. Verse 23 reminds me to do a real heart check. I want to always savor the things of God, life is too short to waste it on the things of this world. Time is fleeting. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.” ~ Matthew 16:22-23
