Matt 26:33 Peter answered and said to Him, “Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble.”
Oh, this confidence in the flesh, how it deceives us. In order to say this, you must feel confident your spiritually strong, have overcome temptation and sins. Basically, you've arrived! I know I have been here to many way to many times. Oh, Im over that, or Im strong enough for this. To then crash and burn. Oh why God? I thought I was stronger than this LORD. I thought I knew better! How did I get there? I trusted and relied upon my flesh. The LORD is not dependant upon my great strength, its actually the opposite. When Im weak, Im trust upon His strength, then He can use me. This also sees the great need for our brothers & sisters to be successful in our walks and not belittle them, judge them, and put them down. We are all on this journey in Christ together.
