Matthew 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” So he went out and wept bitterly.
Peter did not want to deny Jesus. In fact, he told Jesus that He would never deny Him. But when it came down to the sticky situation Peter denyed knowing Jesus. He is a lot like us. We want to please Him, but instead of asking Him to give us help, we try to do it ourselves. Let’s pray for Him to give us the want-to to want-to!
Pray: Lord, I cannot do it myself. I am a lot like Peter. I want to please You, but I can’t do it alone. Father, cleanse my heart and soul today. Give me the want-to to want-to please You! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
