He Already Knows

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“He Already Knows”

Luke 22:31-34 The Message (MSG)

31-32 “Simon, stay on your toes.  Satan has tried his best to separate all of you from me, like chaff from wheat.  Simon, I’ve prayed for you in particular that you not give in or give out.  When you have come through the time of testing, turn to your companions and give them a fresh start.”

33 Peter said, “Master, I’m ready for anything with you. I’d go to jail for you.  I’d die for you!”34 Jesus said, “I’m sorry to have to tell you this,  Peter, but before the rooster crows you will have three times denied that you know me.”

Further Thought:  It’s encouraging to know that our Heavenly Father already knows every bad decision we will ever make before we make it, and He still chooses to love and share His Kingdom with us.  In today’s passage, we have Peter, who Jesus told would deny Him three times before it happened.  Notice that Jesus didn’t focus on his denial but on what he needed to do after the denial.  So, don’t keep reliving bad decisions.  Instead, come through them and share your love [your experience] with others going through a similar situation.  Let’s recognize that every decision we’ve made or will make, good or bad, has been factored into the great plans He still has for those who will follow Him.

Have a day, and keep chewing on God’s Word.
