What a Revelation!

Reading through Matthew 16:13-20 clearly shows us the vital necessity that we allow ourselves time to hear from God.  Peter received a wonderful gift that day.  It was a gift of “Revealed Knowledge.”  Jesus clarified it for us as He said, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.”

When God reveals something to you, no one can take it away.  As Jesus expressed, not even the gates of Hades can overcome it!

I have come to realize that God reveals things to us more often than we recognize. Since God cares for every detail of our lives, as Scripture tells us, we should be looking for the many revelations each day as God speaks into our lives.

Here is what I’ve come to experience.  The more I have disciplined myself to be watching for Him to speak and move, the more I have discovered that He does it all of the time!

If you are feeling like God hasn’t done anything special in your life recently, I challenge you to start taking notice of even the little things that bless you throughout the day.  It may be a friend handing you a soda, finding a coupon for something you really enjoy, discovering a nail in the driveway before you back out the car, or walking in the door just in time to catch that phone call for which you have been waiting.

Each time something happens, take a moment to praise Him for it!  Soon, you will discover that He is consistently speaking into your life!  God is always revealing Who He is to you!

Love in Christ,
