“Humble yourselves therefore under the might…

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
If we’re honest, we’ll admit that we often depend on our own strength and very often cast our cares onto a friend instead of the Lord. When we realize we have absolutely no ability in ourselves to handle our anxieties and concerns, we will not hesitate to turn to the One who does. That takes humility. Only a prideful heart thinks that we have the power in ourselves to solve every problem in life. But Jesus said, “Apart from Him, we can do nothing.” So we must trust Him to lift us up at the right time, to vindicate us, to prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies, to anoint our heads with oil, and to cause our cups to run over—if we humble ourselves.
