Verse of the Day

1 Peter 5:9

Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

1 Peter 5:9

Stand Firm

1 Peter 5:8 tells us to be watchful of the enemy’s attacks. Verse 9 says to stand firm against him and be strong in the faith. How do we live in our strength, so that the enemy will be defeated in our lives? When you really spend time with the Lord and read the Bible, you will find yourself able to stand firm. The last part of this verse gives us great hope. We can take hope because others around the world are standing with us. We are not alone in our trials and suffering.

Take some time today to thank God for your Christian brothers and sisters who are going through the same things you are. Ask Him to help him encourage others as well.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for Christians everywhere who are standing firm against the devil and his schemes. Amen.
