When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you…” Matthew 16:13-17
I was standing in my kitchen recently having a serious conversation with the Lord.
My husband had taken a new job in Tennessee and was house hunting, while I stayed behind with the children packing and preparing for our move.
There was a lot to be accomplished on both ends and it seemed as if we had more questions than answers, as we were still waiting for key elements of the puzzle to be revealed.
This particular day I was more than frustrated and as I began lamenting (biblical word for ‘being a big whiney baby’) my cares and concerns to the Lord, I was taken aback by the response.
As if almost audibly, I heard him respond, “Who do you say I am?”
I stood there for a moment, a bit confused. “You’re God,” I mentally responded.
And it was at that moment I knew His exact point.
Yes, He is God.
The One in control of all that was seemingly spinning out of control around me. The One who had the exact date, the exact hour, the exact house planned before the beginning of time.
Do you feel like things are spinning out of control?
Do you feel overwhelmed as you are an imperfect wife to your imperfect husband?
In the unanswered question and frustrations of life, who do you say He is?
If He is the God that we say He is, then let’s challenge ourselves to let that be the foundation of our walk as Imperfect Wives.
