Two people who are concerned for you: God and Satan → very clearly seen in 1 Peter 5:6-11. One thing I want you to internalize from this sermon is that iIn times of despair, suffering (context here in 1 Peter) you must be reliant/dependent upon the Lord.
Pastors teach the Bible so you’ll not be led astray, they serve as examples, they hold you accountable, help you wage war against your sin because you’ve been entrusted to their care and in the midst of all of that you/we need to be reliant/dependent upon the Lord. This passage tells us we should have an attitude of reliance.
Scripture: 1 Peter 5:6-11; Matthew 5:7; Phillipians 2:1-11; Proverbs 8:13; Proverbs 16:5
