// Read: Matthew 16:13-20 //
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be[c] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[d] loosed in heaven.” 20 Then he ordered his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
Know that the definition of people about you cannot be the same; it happened to Jesus our Lord. Take note of the following concerning the way people identify you:
i. People will interpret the latest with the previous Vs 14. They called Jesus, John the Baptist, Jeremiah, one of the Prophets.
ii. Experience is what people use to define you, their past experience Jeremiah, John etc
iii. Revelation of your future is your definition not the previous. So stay glue to what God reveals to you. So your destination is the revelation that you have not your education. Move from your ‘Experiences Self’ to ‘your Revelation Self’.
PRAYER: Father, open my eyes to see what you have made me to be.
