Sifted Like Wheat
"Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers." Luke 22:31-32
I have always had a little irritation with Peter. While I admire His bold rashness, I am often left shaking my head because of the things he says or does without thinking. He is impulsive and impetuous, and I am probably irritated because I am so much like him. I've always thought that this matter of denying Jesus was ridiculous because he was Jesus' right hand man. And to boot, Jesus had already told him what would happen. And yet Peter still didn't recognize it when it was happening.
It won't be long before Peter is doing just what Jesus said, encouraging his brothers by his story. We too can use our mistakes to lift others up. Let's not be discouraged by the times when we fall. Instead, let's allow them to draw us nearer to our Savior and make His Name known.
Let's be honest about where we are today. Admit it if we have failed. Admit that we cannot live this life without God's help. And remember, He is near to the humble (James 4:6).
