Luke 22:31-32, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. 32 But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.”
In these final days before Jesus would surrender His life to be slaughtered, He spoke these words to Peter.
Isn’t it amazing how much Jesus was thinking of Peter even when torture was staring at Him?
YOU SEE, JESUS IS THINKING ABOUT YOU TOO!
Jesus prophesied that Satan had issued an assignment against Peter. One that would bring this truly valiant man of God to his knees in failure as he would deny the Messiah.
THIS IS WHY I LOVE JESUS SO MUCH!!!
Even when He knows we are going to deny Him, HE STILL NEVER GIVES UP ON US!
Jesus is praying for us to succeed, but if we do not, He is praying for our repentance and restoration. HE NEVER GIVES UP ON US.
EVEN WHEN WE GIVE UP ON OURSELVES – HE NEVER MOVES FROM HIS PRAYER FOR US TO GET UP, THEN BUILD UP OTHERS!
This is not a license to live any manner we desire, for if you truly love Jesus Christ like Peter did, after you sin there will be great remorse and repentance.
DON’T GIVE UP!
JESUS IS NOT GIVING UP ON YOU ON THIS EASTER WEEK OF PASSION!
