Luke 22:54-57 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Luke 22:54-57

Peter followed at a distance. And when some there had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them. A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, “This man was with him.” But he denied it. 


I was in Luke this morning and was reading where Jesus is arrested and Peter follows at a distance and eventually denies him. It struck me because sometimes, I do the same thing. I say I will go with Him wherever He wants, but when push comes to shove, I let Him go in first and then decide if I want to follow! But it can’t be this way, because when I let that distance come between us, it gives the enemy that opening to attack! If I’m going to walk with Jesus into a lion’s den, I have to be right on His heels or I’m not going to make it!!


God reminded me this morning that when I was a little kid, I used to follow my mom around the house so closely that if she stopped, I would run into her. Why did I do this? Because she was the one who protected me, loved me, guided me, fed me, and did so many other things! God told me this morning that’s how I have to be when walking with Jesus!! I have to be so close to Jesus that if He stops, I will run into Him!!!!


One last thing God revealed to me about this is that the areas I’m strong in are only because I let Him rule them, and my weakness comes from me trying to run without Him!! We gotta be so close to Jesus that others can’t tell where one ends and the other begins!!!!!


I love you all, God bless, and glory to God!!!!
