1 Peter 5:6-10

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful.

Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

==

There is bad news:
The Devil is seeking to devour you.
Christians will suffer.

But here are the promises:
At the proper time, God will exalt you.
God cares for you.
You are called to eternal glory in Christ.
God will restore you.
God will confirm you.
God will strengthen you.
God will establish you.

And only in a little while. Trust God. Wait for your salvation. Stand strong.
