Today the Lord opened my eyes to a new revelation from this familiar story.
Why didn't the disciples recognize Jesus? They just saw Him the day before, and knew Him well. Did they really forget what He looked like?
Of course not. And yet they didn't know Him. Here's what the Lord revealed to me today.
- Jesus came to them in a way that was humanly impossible.
- They were not expecting Him.
- So instead of recognizing Him, they feared Him.
- Even when He identified Himself, Peter (and probably the others) still had doubts.
Lord, where have I missed you?
Help me to expect the impossible, and to never fear You.
I'm pondering this new revelation today. Please join me!
