I have to confess that like so many of those in the Bible who though chosen by God, still failed Him. I have failed terribly!
I can relate a lot to Peter, always running my mouth when I should be quiet. Boastful, overzealous and a know it all!
Peter actually thought he knew more than Jesus! Can you imagine that? Yet, how many times have I tried to solve my problems through means I knew were not in agreement with Jesus?
I am thankful God my Father loves me enough to rope me in and discipline me. I am amazed at the faithfulness and compassion God shows to me.
Remember the Israelites and how ungrateful and unfaithful they were after all God did to rescue them from Egypt, yet God in His infinite love continued to pursue them!
What a patient and loving God He is. How could I ever fail Him?
Lord, forgive me for my lack of faith and joy after all you have done for me!
Let me be a grateful and faithful woman of God.
