Good morning! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are testing ourselves with God definition of go.
Matthew 17v27 But so that we may not offend them, go to the lake and throw out your line.
In this story of Jesus providing the temple tax through a miracle gives us a view of His power. We have to remember by faith we also can receive this same power of knowing He works many miracles through us. When we are approached by collectors Jesus tells us to go and use the skill I have given you. We also here Him tell us, "Go and use the new ability or the new skill I have given you. Go and I will show you the miracle I will provide through your skill or ability I have given you." He told Peter to go out to the lake and throw in his line. Peter did it in faith of who Jesus was and because of the love He had for Him. We also do what Jesus says out of faith expressing it through the love we have for Him because we truly know Him through the Holy Spirit and the love He has for us. We have faith in Him because we know where our ability's and our skills come from. When he tells us to use what He has given us we know He will provide for us, through His many supernatural resources and miracles. It was not by Peter's natural skill he caught the fish that had enough money in it to pay the collector his tax and Jesus's tax too! It was by Peter's faith in Him to do what Jesus told Him too that he received what He needed by the supernatural power of Jesus. He did not question Jesus, he took the first fish, opened its mouth, and he found a four drachma coin, he took it and gave it to the collectors. Step by Step His faith in Jesus was proved through his doing what Jesus said, out of the love Peter had for Him. This is our relationship each day when we go to work, when we use the skills Jesus has given us. Our faith is expressed to us listening to His instruction out of the grace we receive from Him. His grace through the Holy Spirit speaks to us and tells us to have faith, to please the Spirit by having faith in His resources of miracles he used yesterday He still uses today. We do not know how the coin got into the fish. We do not know how He works our promotions, raises, how we receive more money from our skills, all we know is to have faith in Him providing us with all we need and he will give us enough to help someone else! Today in Faith go and use the skills He has given you to receive what you need to pay your collectors and see His miracles take place!! If you do not see His miracles today walk in faith everyday, never give up having faith in Him, we have faith in what we do not see. We do not live by sight we live by faith, so today go in faith by using your skills He has given you and see His supernatural powers take place! Read Matthew 17 and see His many miracles done through our faith in Him! I love all of you through the love He gives me for you!
