From Pastor Gary….
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that in the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5: 6-7)
Peter echoes the words of Jesus who said, “the one who humbles themselves himself will be exalted.” (Luke 18:14). We humble ourselves and confess our sins and our need of a Savior, who we have in Christ Jesus. We also humble ourselves and acknowledge the sovereignty of God. The people and circumstances of the world are not in control, God is. Therefore, we come to the Lord in prayer laying before him all that would cause anxiety. In this time of uncertainty, we trust that in the proper time (in God’s time) His help will come.
Gospel verse for today:
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6: 33)
