In a Time of Waiting, Who Should You Follow?
“When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, ‘Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’”
“One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of the man whose ear Peter has cut off, asked, ‘Did I see you in the garden with him?’ Peter again denied it.” (John 18:26-27)
When nothing seems to be happening, remember what God has done!
In a Time of Wanting, Who Should You Follow?
“And the LORD said to Moses, ‘Go down, for your people whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves. They have turned aside quickly out of the way that I have commanded them.’” (Exodus 32:7)
“Peter was grieved because (Jesus) said to him a third time, ‘Do you love me?’ and he said to him, ‘Lord, you know everything, you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep’. (John 21:17)
When you can’t see God, realize that God sees you and loves you!
