Who do you say He is?

Read Matthew 16:15-19 (

How do you view Jesus?
Through the spiritual eyes of others or through your own?
Do you step inside the garden of God’s heart and take in the things He shares with you?

Sometimes we ride on the revelations of others and we don’t truly seek God to find our own revelations. Peter walked with Jesus, and saw the full revelation of who Jesus is. But the rest of the disciples saw Jesus as another prophet and not the Son of God. God wants us to get to know His character and the secrets of his heart. He has so much more for us!




I need to know what to do, but God seems silent.

In the bible God spoke through DREAMS. In Acts 16:9-10 ( God used a dream to show Paul where to go. In Genesis 28:10-17 ( God used a dream to encourage Jacob. In Acts 10:3-8 ( God guides Cornelius through a dream to do something that would change His life forever.

And this still happens today, there are many stories of people in Muslim countries who have never met a Christian, but are seeing Jesus in dreams and coming to faith as a result.

Lord, help me be open to you speaking through the miraculous and not just discard it when you do.



He fulfilled the Law for us

Read Matthew 5:17 (

Throughout the Old Testament, before Jesus was born, many prophets and messengers were sent by God to lead the people back to Him. But each time there were still some people living unrighteously and going against the commands of God. Even some of the people chosen by God had sinned against Him.

Fast forward to the crucifixion, we can see how deeply God loves us that He sent His only begotten son to die for us. Jesus came to complete the Law. Now we get to go straight to God through the Messiah – the perfect High Priest. Oh, how He loves us!




Does God answer prayer?
When Daniel was thrown to the lions, we see in Daniel 6:22 ( that God shut their mouths. When asked what happened, Daniel recognised it was a direct Result of God’s work.

You can see God speaking and answering your prayers through the RESULTS of what He does in the world around you. Yet, often you are so busy with your life that you miss what He is doing.

Open your eyes to what He is doing, when you look at the world and see that He is speaking through His actions.

Lord, help me to look for how you are working all around me.
