Read Mark 8 today.

As with nearly every chapter of Mark, there is a lot packed into these verses. Jesus and His disciples traveled north of the Sea of Galilee to the area of Caesarea Philippi. As Jesus was explaining the things that would happen in the future (Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection), Peter did what most of us would do, he disagreed with God’s plan.
Have you ever disagreed with God’s plan, or with what God was allowing to happen in your life? Seeing things from God’s point of view is not always easy.
God, as I look at the things happening in my life and the lives of those around me, may I see things from Your point of view. And when I cannot see as You do, may I trust You anyway. Amen.
Mark 8:31-33 NLT
Then Jesus began to tell them that the Son of Man must suffer many terrible things and be rejected by the elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of religious law. He would be killed, but three days later he would rise from the dead. [32] As he talked about this openly with his disciples, Peter took him aside and began to reprimand him for saying such things.
[33] Jesus turned around and looked at his disciples, then reprimanded Peter. “Get away from me, Satan!” he said. “You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”
