Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 5:10


5:10 Now the God of all grace - By which alone the whole work is begun, continued, and finished in your soul. After ye have suffered a while - A very little while compared with eternity. Himself - Ye have only to watch and resist the devil: the rest God will perform. Perfect - That no defect may remain. Stablish - That nothing may overthrow you. Strengthen - That ye may conquer all adverse power. And settle you - As an house upon a rock. So the apostle, being converted, does now strengthen his brethren.

    Faith is key to overcoming the devil. We cannot afford to allow our faith to fail. One way to sustain our faith and have victory is to recall testimonies of what God did for us and others. David use it to overcome Goliath. Our testimony of the ability of our God is a weapon that cannot fail. Shalom!
