Mark 14:66-72

On the night of Jesus' arrest, Peter learned the hard way he was humanly weak and could not trust his own resolve. He had boasted he would never deny Christ, and then not only denied him three times, but punctuated his denials with passionate curses. Peter learned he must rely on the Lord's strength, for his own was not sufficient, and never would be. Ask Jesus to give you strength to do the right things and say the right words today. Rest in his promise to use you in spite of your sinful tendencies and weaknesses.
