“Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation]
under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you.
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns,
once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.”
1 Peter 5:6, 7
I want to focus on the last part of that verse today. The word says to bring ALL your anxieties,
worries and concerns. But how many times do we try to deal with problems on our own.
I had to stop myself the other day from worrying, from trying to solve a problem on my own.
The truth is the Lord wants to fix every problem we face.
The call is to bring everything to Him. We don’t need to carry a single thing.
But because we have been taught to be strong we try to go at it alone. But all that will do is
tire you out. The more I try to go at it alone the more worn down and weighed down I feel.
Like I have said so many times before, the Lord is not impressed with our show of strength.
He is impressed with our faith in Him, with the confidence we put in His ability.
Give it all to Him and don’t hold on to anything.
Blessings to you friends.
