Expect a Miracle

The thought came to me…that Peter was expecting a miracle. He had shown up in the courtyard of the house of the high priest, and he was expecting a miracle. And why shouldn’t he? Jesus had performed miracle after miracle before Peter and His other followers. Water turned to wine, the blind saw, the lame walked, the dead were made alive and sins were forgiven.

What kind of man can forgive sins? Only a king, only the highest of rulers. Peter believed Jesus had that kind of authority and more, that he had the ability to forgive secret sins. The sins no one knew about except the sinner—and God. Jesus commended Peter for his declaration, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16-17).

Contemplating the many times Jesus told the disciples to not doubt, to have faith, and to believe; it would seem that, considering the circumstances, it was the appropriate time for Peter to be expecting a miracle. I can’t point a finger at Peter denying Christ three times—because I can so see myself there—stressed and focused on what Jesus was going to do, so desirous to leap to His side and fight for His deliverance, that I would be inattentive to other things in life. Those things that seem inconsequential, but, of course, for Peter he realized what he’d done too late to rectify it—the denial of his Lord, not once, but thrice.
It is plain that it was sin but I can see how it was possible…he was hoping for, looking for, a miracle.

I can identify, at least at this point in my life—I want a miracle; I believe for a miracle; I pray for a miracle. But I know that, like Peter, I must wait to see what the Lord will do.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
