No Matter What: Part 11

SERIES: NO MATTER WHAT (The Book of 1 Peter)

PART 11: STRATEGIES OF SATAN

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. 11All power to him forever! Amen.

“I have written this short letter to you with the help of Silas, whom I consider a faithful brother. My purpose in writing is to encourage you and assure you that the grace of God is with you no matter what happens.”

Your sister church here in Babylon sends you greetings, and so does my son Mark. 14Greet each other with a kiss of love. Peace be with all of you who are in Christ.

(1 Peter 5:7-14, NLT)
