It is encouraging to know that God is infinitely stronger than Satan, and that if we simply trust God to the end, he will give us eternal life. But it is doubly encouraging, doubly hopeful, that Jesus Christ and God the Father do not stand back and watch to see if we will have the strength to endure in faith. In fact, I am sure that if the Holy Trinity were not busy day and night strengthening my faith, it would evaporate in a minute. Notice Jesus prays to his Father for Simon (now the word "you" is singular in verse 32: I prayed for "you," that is, Simon). He asks God to do what needs to be done in order to preserve Simon from destruction.
I had a dream that expressed this verse. I don’t get it I prayed to God several times, every day almost and asked Him for help. Nothing! Just sadness and pain, hurt and constant rejection all my life and more so after I was born again. I don’t know what and who to trust in church and out. His church has abused me and rejected me. I am not going to church anymore… and I don’t trust God much anymore because He continue to allow the devil to attack me… ‘Even in His church’, and I don’t see Him doing anything to stop it all. Just promises!
