What makes it seem like everything falls apart some days? Where does frustration and failure come from? One cannot deny that at times the presence of our own mistakes and selfishness looms alarmingly over us. It seems to envelope us when we think we can do nothing right to make up for all the things we have done so wrong. The passage of 1 Peter 5:8 is a warning, but moreover it is encouragement that is found in the surrounding versus gives us hopeful perspective of our troubles.
