He gets the last word.
1 Peter 5:8-11
Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ – eternal and glorious plans they are! – will have you put together on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.
I love this verse. When things are hard and life feels heavy – hold on to this. Know that you’re not alone in the battle, it’s the same with Christians all over the world.
Peter warns us to keep a firm grip on our faith and to hold on. It’s so easy to want to give up when everything goes wrong and when it feels like God is far away.
It’s so important to remind yourself daily that you have a generous God who loves you and has a great plan for you. Hold on to that promise, don’t let go now.
Whatever your situation is and however you’re feeling right now, remember that our God always gets the last word.
