The heart is deceitful above all things.
“All of you will desert me,” Jesus told his disciples.
Not me, protested Peter: “Not even if I have to die with you! . . . And all the others vowed the same” (Mk 14:31 NLT).
They were sincere but weaker than they thought.
Within a few hours, Jesus was arrested. “[A]ll his disciples deserted him and ran away” (Mk 14:50).
You may not know your weak spots, but God does.
Ask him to keep you from “willful sins,” and also to forgive your “hidden faults” (Ps 19:12, 13).
Keep me from secret sin,
Reign Thou my soul within.
The greatest weakness is to be aware of none.
