B.L.I.F. Network presents Renewing Word Scripture Study with our host Evangelist Owen Bruce and his guests. The principle of God forming and putting people in the place where He wants them is evident throughout the Bible starting with Adam in Genesis chapter 2. We continue this series by looking at what God had planned for Peter’s life as outlined in John chapter 21 verses 14 to 21. As God placed Adam to care for the Garden of Eden, we see how Peter was called to care for God`s people. Examining some of the passages from the two epistles of Peter helps us to see how God’s purpose was fulfilled in Peter`s life as well as guiding us to fulfill God`s purpose for our lives, even through the trials we face.
``Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get your own way. Then you’ll be able to live out your days free to pursue what God wants instead of being tyrannized by what you want.`` (1 Peter 4:1-2, The Message Bible)
