1 Peter 5 - Key

v9

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Sometimes the devil uses afflictions (troubles) and suffering for a little while (see v10). The way that we are supposed to resist him is by being steadfast, having faith, and remembering that the problems we face are common to all of the brethren.

Application

I'm having major problems with my car, so instead of getting worried and upset, I'll just do what I can to take care of it, and trust the Lord to work the situation out.
