In Luke (22:31-32), Simon was warned that he was going to be tempted and tested by Satan. Jesus knew this and prayed for Simon, that his faith would not fail. Jesus also gave Simon the task of using his experience to help strengthen the faith of others.
Even though the words weren't directed specifically to us, we should listen to and follow Jesus' directions to Simon. We will be tested and we should bring all things to God through prayer. We must hold strong to our faith, trusting in God's wisdom and power. After we have conquered whatever we are facing, we can then use our experiences to help others.
Whenever you find yourself in a situation, face it, pray through it, and use it to help others!
Thank You for being my strength in all things. Help me to use my experiences and successes through You to strengthen those around me. Help me to build others up in You for Your glory. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
