Satan always wanted to lead God’s beloved into destruction. Our Lord Jesus told Peter that “Satan demanded to have [him].” But Christ prayed for him that his faith may not fail (Luke 22:31-32).
Thrice did Peter deny the Lord. But thrice did he also affirm his love to Him (John 18:15-27; 21:15-17).
In the same way, we are like Peter. We will fall at times but we will also rise. Isn’t it comforting to know that Satan has no power over us and that Christ prayed for us (John 17)? Now, we can live according to that comfort.
