1 Peter 5:6-7 (New King James Version)
6] Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7] casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Turn Our Cares Over to God
Being humble is not popular in our society anymore. I've not seen any business courses on how to be humble in the work place. Yet this portion of Scripture tells me that humbling myself to our Sovereign God will be good for me. Oddly, the Apostle Peter couples that principle with our ability to cope with trials. Only by letting God be God in my life, can I graciously overcome the trials that come.
It takes an act of faith to turn our troubles over to God. But no physician ever weighed out medicine to his patient with half so much care and exactness as God weighs trials out to us. Not one grain too much does He over permit to be put on the scale.
FOR TODAY: Cast all your care on Him for he cares for you.
