And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.—Luke 22:31-32
Just recently, I was on a phone call when the scripture above rose up within my spirit. It seemed to say to me that although we may go through circumstances in which we may stumble or even fall—remember that Jesus prayed and has given His life that our faith does not fail!
Every day, we have opportunities to give up on our faith in God. But no matter how frustrating your situation may be…please do not look at the circumstances of your situation. The Lord God is our provider in every situation. He will help us when we don’t want to help ourselves!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.—Psalm 23:4
Regardless of the darkness of the time, our God is always with us. He will never leave or forsake us, and when we lack the strength to continue—it is He that carries us through!
