Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 16.17

Jesus was clear in saying that we are blessed when we receive the revelation from Heaven. With it, we will speak wisely, make right decisions, and do the work successfully. Without heavenly revelations, nothing good will be produced or accomplished. What is born of the flesh is of no good. We need to have God’s approval in our attitudes, judging it to be His will. The Lord is good and faithful!

In Jesus’ teachings, He spoke about the human inability to fulfill His purpose properly, but by following His information, we will become blessings to all. According to the Savior, we are to perform the same works done by Him. This means that the Master’s ability will be made available to us (John 14.12). To do this, we cannot accept suggestions from others, because they may have come from the enemy. The Most High is our Source!

To the Master, we are not His servants, but His friends! But this doesn’t happen automatically, only when we fulfill a requirement: You will be my friends if you do what I command you (John 15.14). It is good to know that by an act that would be our obligation, we will be recognized as such. This has a good implication concerning us. Are we going to be friends of the Lord?

To praise God for the wonderful blessings is the least we can do to express our gratitude towards Him. However, the devil will tempt us on this matter. The solution for us is to heed Jesus’ warning:  Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak (Matthew 26.41). In Christ, we are stronger than hell!

God’s Spirit will use each one of the saved, so don’t give Satan a chance to lead you. If that happens, you will need the Lord’s mercy to be set free, as it happened to Peter, to whom Jesus said: Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men (Matthew 16.23).

Certainly, whoever walks in the spirit will be used by the Master in works that will distinguish him from the others, but it is good to be careful never to be corrupted by the devil nor think you are special. Pride is one of the means used by the evil one to keep you away from your position in God. Besides this, there are other temptations that lead to the sins of the flesh, such as dishonesty and marital unfaithfulness (Proverbs 16.18). Be vigilant!

Be blessed and never fall into the condemnation of the enemy. Thus, you will continue to be useful in the Lord’s hands. Jesus warned that only he who endures to the end will be saved (Matthew 24.13). Don’t risk your eternal happiness by letting Satan lead you to betray the trust of the Most High. God loves you indeed.

In Christ, with love,

Lord! We want to be blessed to tell You what You want to hear. The other disciples probably didn´t pray to know who was the One who spoke in Your Name and did wonders. But Peter did!

Flesh and blood cannot teach us the Truth, only Your Spirit. We need to speak everything in agreement with the Scriptures. Then, we will give the right answer to You or to whoever asks us something. After all, we are part of Your Body!

May the Master instruct us and guide us! Thus, Your Name will be glorified. We can't fail to give You praise - for everything that comes to us to do or to speak. Help us to depend on Your love!
