-by David Wilkerson.

Peter was the man who said he would never desert Jesus. Yet, not
only did Peter deny he knew Him, but he did it with a stream of
profanities pouring from his mouth.

"And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood
by, This is one of them. And he denied it again. And a little after,
they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them. . . .
But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man
of whom ye speak" (Mark 14:69-71).

If you had been standing near the fire listening to Peter, you
may have thought, "Is this the man who was on the Mount of
Transfiguration? The one who laid hands on the sick and they
recovered? The one entrusted with the keys to the kingdom?
Listen to what's coming out of his mouth! How could he walk so
intimately with the Lord and then blow up like this, lying, cursing
and denying Him? It's all over for Peter. He might as well go back
to his fishing nets. He'll never be heard of again."

Had you run to the Lord exclaiming about PeterĀ“s cursing, He
would have answered, "Yes, Peter has failed Me but I know his
heart. He's going to be on a hill in a few hours, weeping and
coming back to Me. In fact, he is on his way to Pentecost -
to a life of ministry for Me."

"If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself"
(2 Timothy 2:13). The actual Greek reading of this verse is: "If we
are faithless, yet He remains faithful." It is true that Peter was
terribly unfaithful but God remained faithful and His eternal purpose
in Peter's life was not thwarted. Why? Because God cannot deny
who He is.

No matter what you have been through this past year, God looks
on your heart. If you have a broken and contrite spirit, He will be
there for you. His eternal purpose for you will not be ruined
because He will see it through!
