1 Peter 5: 6-9: “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” As Christians we need to present all our worries, anxieties, and problems to God in order to let Him handle them. “Be sober” means to be self-disciplined, to think rationally and not foolishly. Satan is both cunning and cruel. He attacks when least expected and desires to destroy completely those whom he attacks. We are not commanded to run, but to resist – to fight rather than flee from Satan’s grasp. Victory comes when we remain committed to God, because He is greater than our enemy.
