JUL. 31

Luke 22:31-32
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.

Jesus has given us such a life that even the painful unexpected situations that we sometimes go through, will work out so much glory and unbelievable good things for us. In our text above, Jesus did not say 'Peter, if you come out of it', Rather, He said 'when you come out of it'. Jesus had absolute confidence in Peter's rising again. Jesus used the word converted because He knew that when Peter came out of it, he would be a better person. You also will victoriously come out in every way better than when you went into it.

Hebrews 12:11 says now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Some people don't hang in there long enough to reap the good fruit that the situation is meant to produce in their lives. Sometimes it will literarily feel like a death experience. In 2Corinthians 1:8-9, Apostle Paul said, for we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

Your God will not leave you in any hell or death situation, (Psa.16:10). Don't allow the devil have you; don't give up on your faith. If you must have any sorrow at all, make sure it is godly sorrow. Godly sorrow makes you humble yourself before God and repent or receive any correction that God may be ministering to you about, 2Corinthians 7:10. Have the kind of joy that God set before Jesus, that made Him able to endure the Cross and despise the shame He was going through, Heb.12:2.

DECLARATION: Dear God, I fix my eyes on You today because You are the author and finisher of my faith.
