But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
In our text today, we find JESUS saying to Peter, I have prayed for you, not so the devil would not have his way, not so you would not die young but that your “…faith fail not.” I have come to discover that people do not fail in life majorly because of the opposition, but because of their faith size, why? Because as long as your faith is standing, you can handle any devil. There is no dart the devil will fire at you that your shield of faith cannot quench.
This is why, the most profitable move you can make in this kingdom is the move to grow your faith. A man of faith never sees frustrations, he rather frustrates frustrations and this is made possible because;
“We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly…”– 2 Thessalonians 1:3a
When your faith grows, it shows. It shows in the way you react violently against fear builders, it shows in your confessions which are not empty talks but words spoken as a direct products of the revelations you have contacted from the Word of God. The authenticity of your faith is proven when the situation seems most impossible. Faith is a process that begins with hearing the Word of God, to meditating upon it, to your confessions of faith, to acting out what you believe and being consistent at it. These grow your faith as you keep feeding and exercising it, just like the muscles in your body, as you keep stressing it, it keeps stretching and growing.
