I have only one thing to add to this- neither become discouraged over the times, these end times. This ugly, demon controlled world is falling apart but those who have all their faith and reliance on the Lord Jesus are going up soon. They that endure to the end shall be saved (Matthew 24:13, Mark 13:13, James 5:11). -Admin-
Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.” Acts 2:14 (NKJV)
Can you remember the first time you were truly excited about learning something new? The disciples knew that feeling. Jesus had spent three years with them. His crucifixion had left them despondent and lonely. But the Resurrection changed their view. For the first time they grasped what He had been saying. Can you imagine what it was like to be with Peter when he finally understood?
Acts 2:14-36 provides this account. The man who stood up and spoke on the day of pentecost was not the same man who had denied Christ on the night of His arrest. What changed Peter was not merely being around Jesus; the indwellings of Christ’s Spirit made the transformation complete.
Make Christ the FOCUS of your days and the emphasis of your praise. He knows where He is leading you, and He is aware of all that is needed to make your life complete. Neither should you become discouraged over the times you fall short of your expectations. Allow God to be in control, and you will discover freedom unlike any you have ever known.
