Sheep to shepherd
When they heard them speak they said surely these men had been with Jesus. When God elevates you all else cease to matter. Your lack of qualification is qualified by his presence. That’s all the education Peter had!!! The bible recounts how these men were cowering after their shepherd was taken away. As a believer what you need to understand is that you are not to be a sheep all your days, you are to learn from your shepherd so as to be able to lead his flock to him the same way he has led you. Refuse to be stagnant. The calamity that resulted from the death of Christ was the push that the apostles needed. They went on to do mighty works throughout the book of Acts and beyond. I don’t necessarily know your circumstances right now but I know there is always some form of calamity around every one of us. Instead of it knocking you down, let it be the push that you use to rise up and do mighty exploits. In the name of Jesus, you will begin to savour the good shepherd’s presence. You’re learning and growing everyday. A great leader is rising inside of you in the name of Jesus. You are maturing in Christ. Your troubles have met their match today. In the name of Jesus, you are transforming into who he called you to be. Amen.
