Stop Reversing the Roles

1 Peter 5:7-8 says:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for HE CARETH FOR YOU.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL, as a roaring lion, walketh about, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR.
Note that God CARES for you and the devil is out to DEVOUR you. It seems to me that the church too often reverses the roles. Some seem to teach that God is an adversary trying to devour us though it is usually phrased in more "pious" and "religious" tones ("God permitted you to suffer that car accident to teach you" or "God gave you that sickness to humble you").
God is not the SOURCE of our problems, He is the SOLVER of our problems. He asks us to give our problems to Him because He cares about us. Satan, on the other hand, is seeking to devour and destroy you. But we give praise to God that he has been defeated through the redemptive work of Christ.
Jesus does not put on you the very thing He died to deliver you from. This is Satan's doing. Resist Satan and don't reverse the roles.
