Mark 14:29 (NIV)
Peter declared, “Even if all falls away, I will not.”
Peter had an inflated sense of his own spiritual strength and capacity. Jesus knew the intensity of the trial ahead for all the disciples. He knew that Satan would watch for every opportunity to take advantage of the situation and play off the disciples’ confusion, fear, and despair. Jesus knew Peter’s true capacity. He knows our as well. When trials come, how do we respond? Satan uses disorder and chaos against us. He whispers into our thoughts that God has forsaken us and our faith is useless. But Jesus prays for us—and we must pray for each other, also. Who do you know who is facing a great trial of faith? Pray for them today.
