Ask God…to help you humble yourself. Oooh…that just doesn’t sound fun does it? Well…then ask Him to lift you up. Okay Brenda, I can probably do that since that sounds like it will benefit me. But humbling sounds like it might make me give up something that I like to do or it might make me admit that I was wrong and they were right.
What we don’t realize that when we humble ourselves we are casting our cares on God! The God that can actually do something about whatever concerns us wants to hear from us! God gave me this verse this morning and I know it was from Him because I have a heavy heart about something that I care very deeply about and really He is the only one that can do anything about it. It’s His mighty hand that can change it! In HIS DUE TIME!!
My prayer today is that I will humble myself and my concerns under the Mighty Hand of God! I trust that He in His due time will answer my prayers!! That He will do it in a way that He will be exalted and glorified!! I pray that Revival comes!
Vs 7 says “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” In my case, I am not really anxious about this situation, I am just burdened by it! No matter, if you are going through something that you are anxious about or that you just have heavy on your heart, God cares! Humble yourself and lift it up to Him and He will in turn lift you up! He hears your prayers! He cares!!
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. (1 Peter 5:6 NIV)
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”)
