From Pastor Gary…
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7)
Pride tells us we can make it on our own and we can solve all our problems. What is on your plate today that may cause concern or anxiety or fear? It may be some natural, economic, or medical dilemma. It could be just the daily things you face going to work or raising a family. God says to humble yourself, put your trust in Him, and cast your anxieties on Him because he cares for you. There is absolutely no question about that. After all, he cared enough to send His only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for your sins.
Verse for today:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5)
