Let Him Have His Way With Thee (1 Peter 5:6-11)Phillip Stuckey, October 13, 2019
Part of the Hymn Studies series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Jesus was a humble servant of God (Matt. 20:26-28). He was willing to trust and obey God no matter what, and He calls on us to do the same. But that is not always easy, even in the best of times. It is easy to wonder why we should surrender to Jesus’ Lordship and humbly follow Him. Let us consider the hymn, “Let Him Have His Way With Thee”, that gives us some reasons we should trust and obey the Lord.

1 Peter 5:6–11 (Listen)
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. 10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 11 To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
