One of the characters in the Bible that I can totally relate to is Peter. Being with Jesus the whole time and witnessing all the miracles that Jesus did , should have made his belief in God firm. Rather, he was just like us. Eyeing the storm rather than Jesus, blindly denying Him even after being warned , the first one to step back to old life once Jesus was gone….. I mean could he be anymore like us?????
But his wavering faith seem to stop right there when Jesus asked him…”Do u love me?” After that incident there seems to be no more incidents recorded in the bible about Peter’s staggering in his faith.After that we only hear of how he said to the lame…”Walk in Jesus name” and how he preached to a crowd of more than 3000 people on the day of Pentecost. What a change!!!!The turning point could have been the question Jesus asked him “Do u love me? Or maybe not… Whatever was the turning point it sure did turn him well.
God cannot use us effectively unless we come to that point of blind faith. Faith that will trust God when the going is great and when the going is not happening at all… Faith that will bless the Lord at all times.Faith that will focus on glorifying God rather than getting our wants fulfilled.
Now the question is….. that point of faith……Are we there yet ?
