2-25 Application for June 24-25, 2017 :: 1 Peter 5:6-8

===

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.
1 Peter 5:6-8

With a powerful and dangerous enemy always looking to harm us, how should we behave?
Here are four things this passage tells us to do.

Cast your anxieties on God.
Be sober-minded.
Be watchful.
Be humble under God’s hand.

And here are two reasons why these thing are wise behaviours
God cares for you – he will take care of your anxieties.
God will exalt you – if you humble yourself.

Satan is strong. Aren’t you glad that your God is infinitely stronger?
