Self Confident is the root of all failure

Self Confident

  • Self Confident is the root of all failure
  • Self Confident is the root of all committed sin
  1. Peter boasted on his Love towards God –> Resulted in cursing and swearing
  2. Israel “All that God command us we can do it” –> Resulted in Gold Calf
  3. Paul had self confident in Romans 7
  • Israel and Peter is a picture of Us

Self Confident of Peter

Jesus didn’t pray that Peter should not fail

  • Jesus prayed that Peter’s faith should not fail

Luke 22:31-34
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

33 But he said to Him, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death.”

34 Then He said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me.”

Jesus prophesied about Peter’s return

Luke 22:31-34
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Jesus Prophesied Peter’s Vitory

Luke 22:31-34
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

  • Even longer before Peter fall, God prophesied Peter’s Victory
  • Even longer before we fall, God prophesied our Victory

Overall

  1. Failure
  2. Return
  3. Got Stronger
  4. Strengthen Others

Believe also in Me

  • Chapters and numbers in bible are man made

John 13:38-14:1
New King James Version (NKJV)

38 Jesus answered him, “Will you lay down your life for My sake? Most assuredly, I say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you have denied Me three times.

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

  • Believe also in Me that I will never leave you nor forsake you

Self Confident of Israel

Exodus 19:8
New King James Version (NKJV)

Then all the people answered together and said, “All that the Lord has spoken we will do.” So Moses brought back the words of the people to the Lord.

Exodus 24:3
New King James Version (NKJV)

So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the judgments. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the words which the Lord has said we will do.”

How to overcome Self Confident?

  • Self Confident in our flesh leads to sin

Romans 8:1
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Deliverance from Bondage

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:9
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Goddwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

Are we of less worth now, with No Self Confident?

  • At that instance when we have No Self Confident, Jesus is in full effect
  • We having Jesus Confident
  • We are in Christ Jesus
  • Jesus becomes our Identity
  • Our Worth/Value becomes HIGHEST
