You fear that if something bad happens to you, that you will fall away from the faith--that it will be too much to bear. Don't you see how this is a ploy of the enemy to steal your faith in Me and the dreams I have put in your heart? It is My business when each person dies. Your times are in My hands, so do not give in to fear. You are to live by faith moment by moment. Remember you only have grace for today.
You are wise in not being impetuous like Peter, and assuming that you would stand in your own strength; but neither must you give in to fear. For this is a spirit sent to come against My people in these latter days. Like Peter, I will restore My people's faith and hope in Me! My righteous right hand will save and deliver!
Do not become discouraged or morose when you fail; but repent, turn back, and strengthen those that I have given you charge over. You must resist the devil, for your past is under the blood of Jesus! I see you as righteous, and I see your heart which is committed to Me and My ways! See yourself the way I do! Claim your rightful place, seated with Christ and you will put the enemy to flight. You are hidden in Christ and the enemy cannot touch you there!
Matthew 16:18 The Passion Translation (TPT)
I give you the name Peter, a stone. And this truth of who I am will be the bedrock foundation on which I will build my church—my legislative assembly, and the power of death will not be able to overpower it!
Luke 22:31-32 The Passion Translation (TPT)
31 “Peter, my dear friend, listen to what I’m about to tell you. Satan has demanded to come and sift you like wheat and test your faith. 32 But I have prayed for you, Peter, that you would stay faithful to me no matter what comes. Remember this: after you have turned back to me and have been restored, make it your life mission to strengthen the faith of your brothers.”
Ephesians 2:6 The Passion Translation (TPT)
He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!
