GOD’S WISDOM ~ AFTER FAILURE
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Acts 3:19
You have experienced the nature of My love, how it is not like any other love on earth. I extended mercy to Peter before he even denied Me. Who does this! Then, My eyes embraced him in the courtyard just after he betrayed Me. He lived the next few days in anguish but after My resurrection, I sent word to him that I was alive and anxious to see him. On the shores of Lake Tiberius, he probably believed that I would have a stinging sermon about his defection. He was wrong. I only asked, “Do you love me, Peter?”
The question for anyone who fails Me is the same. “Do you love me? If so, follow me.” My mercy is unfathomable. It will heal you and cause you to be a zealous disciple, finishing the race in a shining blaze of glory.
