Luke 22:31-32

IN THE TEXT BEFORE US

JESUS IS HAVING A PEP TALK WITH PETER

AND HE GIVES PETER A GLIMPES OF A SITUATION THAT WAS WAITING DOWN THE ROAD FOR HIM

AND HE SHARES THIS WITH PETER

BECAUSE HE DID`NT WANT PETER TO THROW IN THE TOWEL AND GIVE UP

SO HE TELLS HIM

Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

IN OTHER WORDS

JESUS TELLS PETER

WHEN TROUBLE COMES --------(AND IT WILL)

WHEN YOU FACE CIRCUMSTANCES -------- -(AND YOU SHALL)

WHEN THINGS IN LIFE FALL APART ON YOU ---(AND THEY WILL)

AND DON`T LET YOUR SITUATIONS GET THE BEST OF YOU

THEN JESUS GIVES PETER A GOLDLY REMEDY HOW TO OVERCOME HIS SITUATIONS

THAT THE DEVIL WANTS TO GET HIS HANDS ON YOU

NOW THE YOU IS PLURAL

IN OTHER WORDS JESUS TELLS PETER

SATAN WANTS TO GET HIS HANDS ON YOU

TO EXPOSE YOUR FAULTS –YOUR SINS AND WEAKNESS

FOR THE PURPOSE OF DISCREDITING YOUR TESTIMONY

AND JUST IN CASES THERE IS SOMEBODY
