“Humble Ourselves Before the Lord God; Resist Satan”
For believers, we love the Lord God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
And then there is Satan, the one who is raising a lot of havoc on this earth.
As believers, we treat the Lord God very differently than Satan.
Please read the following verses
5b “God opposes the proud
but gives grace to the humble.”
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
Ah, what a day that will be when Satan is thrown into the Lake of fire and he is gone from this earth.
Until then, run to the Lord God, to His mercies and wonderful protection and resist Satan.
By being in the Word of God.
He is our wonderful Lord and Counselor.
Trust Him, obey Hm follow Him and Satan will flee.
