“But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.” Luke 22:33 NIV

Peter, the rock on which the church is built made a bold and fearless statement which I am certain he meant as a declaration to his master and friend. No sooner had the furnace of trial intensified, Peter denies the man he was swearing to follow even as far as into prison and into death.

Interestingly, this did not disqualify him from becoming everything Christ had said he would become, instead once trial had accomplished its work (James 1:2), the apostle Peter knew the kind of immeasurable grace showed him and the pardon given him when he repented of his unbelief.

As the first priest of the early church, he had to carry a heart of grace and patience towards the sheep entrusted to Him. This experience caused even his greatest remorse to work together for good.

We experience the same pressures under intense trials, the spouse that has delayed to come and some deny Christ by unequally yoking to non-believers. The capital that is not enough and some resort to unethical means, forsaking the provisions of God and despising small beginnings.

Child of God, the Bible says many are the trials of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of THEM ALL (Psalm 34:19). Trust in the Lord with all your heart and might, and do so to the end. A thousand days to you are simply but a day to Him, and the same God who restores what is lost is the same that redeems the time. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this truth. I have proved you over and over again and I know that you are faithful, holy and good. I have trained my spirit to respond as one that knows good shall come. I am persuaded that he who began a good work in me shall bring it to completion, in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
