1 Peter 5:6-10

Are you sober? Are you vigilant, keeping an eye on your six?

Your adversary has plans to put your soul in a tangled fix.

Walking about, seeking whom he may devour for his next snack.

Can you feel the hot blows of the lion as he breathes down your back?

That big ole nasty cat likes to play many games

And he knows each and every one of you by your names.1 Peter 5 8_9.jpgUpon whom can you cast all your cares?

Disapproval, anger, sin, financial affairs…

Humble yourselves and let the Lord be your remedy

For not one of us is exempt from this prowling enemy.

Each time you let God fight and be the strength to see you through…

After ye have suffered a while, the God of all grace will make you

perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

  1. Humble yourselves! Sometimes easier said than done, isn’t it? This world and society around us doesn’t really care a lot about humbleness anymore. I am thankful to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that He keeps holding onto us, encourages us through His written Word, and never leaves us or forsakes us even though the evil one tries to pull us away. Thank you for sharing that wonderful poem, blessings, Elfriede
