We see problems, God sees solutions. We see failure, God sees potential. We see an end and God sees a new beginning. God can take our endings and turn them into beginnings. Many are discouraged by temptation, but every temptation has a way out. “Happy is the person who patiently endures testing and temptation.” God has built a wall of protection around you! When God allows us to go through fiery trials, He has a purpose.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne once said “If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.” Prayerlessness can be as much a sin as breaking a commandment.
Peter’s setback stands as an example of the fact that nobody is above falling into sin.
- Peter’s first step down was self-confidence.
- Peter’s second step down was a result of prayerlessness.
- Peter fell because he trusted human efforts instead of God’s power.
- Peter fell because he was warming himself at the enemy’s fire.
- Peter’s fifth step down was his denial.
