Christians in Crisis: A Series in First Peter March 2019 God has a design and purpose for all things that we experience. His blueprint for our relationships involves submission and authority, and in similar fashion we are called to trust God’s authority as we submit to suffering and trials in this life. The book of 1 Peter is a call to live faithfully by trusting in the loving plan of our heavenly Father. God knows what He is doing and we can trust Him because we are confident in His love for us. These truths are our hope in every storm.
