False Confidence

Peter answered him, "Though they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away." (Matthew 26:33, ESV)

"Never" is a strong word for such an ordinary man. Peter's assurance of loyalty sounded pretty unshakable.

Did he really think he wasn't capable of turning against Jesus? Sounds like it. But you know, we may have the same thoughts.

So be careful. The moment we think we'll never betray God is the moment we deceive ourselves. We tend to promise a lot but don't always follow through with the same passion.

As broken people, we can't keep from deserting God even in small ways. The real danger, however, is denying that we're capable of turning away from Him. Ignoring our vulnerability is asking for trouble. Satan will jump in and use that false-confidence to destroy you and turn you against God.

Be on guard against denying God. It can happen to any of us. Watch how you spend your time, where you spend your money, where your devotion is directed.

Ask God to be a part of even the seemingly insignificant parts of your life. It'll keep you from leaving Him behind when the big stuff comes along.

Oh, wow! That's such an awesome article. Basically, it's saying that we should keep Him in everything, like a needed $20 for gas in the car, or $50 for food. So when the big stuff comes, we'll know that He's there because He helped us out in the little things. =D That's so awesome!!! =D=D=D=D=D

Yeah! And God tells us in Malachi 3:10 to test Him. Give more than what you have and see how God provides. Give time that you really don't have to someone. See how God will work in that situation and provide you with more time. Give money to someone or something that you know God is calling you to give to, even if you've been saving that money for something "important". And see how God provides. He cares so much about the little details of our lives, the seemingly "insignificant" things of our life. And it's amazing to see Him work when we truly trust Him. Smile
