1 Peter 5:5-12
January 15, 2017

"My purpose in writing is to encourage you and assure you that the grace of God is with you no matter what happens."  1 Peter 5:12

GOD'S SUSTAINING GRACE KEEPS ME STANDING...

1.  WHEN I’M TEMPTED 

"The temptations that you have are the same ones that all people have.  But you can trust God.  He will not let you be tempted more than you can stand.  When you are tempted, God will also give you a way to escape.  Then you will be able to stand it."  1 Corinthians 10:13

2.  WHEN I’M TIRED

"For God is at work within you, giving you the will and the power to achieve His purpose."  Philippians 2:13

3.  WHEN I’M TROUBLED

"So don't worry, because I am with you.  Don't be afraid, because I am your God.  I will make you strong and will help you:  I will support you with My right hand that saves you."  Isaiah 41:10

HOW TO RECEIVE GOD'S SUSTAINING GRACE

1.  CALL OUT FOR GOD’S HELP

"God gives grace to the humble.  So give yourselves completely to God ... Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you."   James 4:6-8

2.  FILL YOUR MIND WITH GOD’S WORD

        "I am ... completely discouraged; revive me by Your Word."  Psalm119:25

3.  ACCEPT SUPPORT FROM GOD’S PEOPLE

"By helping each other with your troubles, you truly obey the law of Christ."  Galatians 6:2

4.  HOLD ON TO GOD’S PROMISES

"So we don't look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen.  For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever."   2 Corinthians 4:18
