Our faith will be challenged by things we cannot see

Luke 22:31
31  “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, [ a ]  that he might sift you like wheat,

Jesus doesn’t expect our faith to be flawless

Luke 22:32
32  but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”

Our faith must be tested

Luke 22:33-34
33  Peter [a]  said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death.”  34  Jesus [b]  said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster
will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.”

Luke 22:54-62
54  Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest's house, and Peter was following at a
distance.  55  And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them.  56  Then a servant
girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, “This man also was with him.”  57  But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not
know him.”  58  And a little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not.”  59  And after an interval of
about an hour still another insisted, saying, “Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.”  60  But Peter said, “Man, I do not know
what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed.  61  And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter
remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.”  62  And he went out and
wept bitterly.
