1 Peter 5:6-7
"Therefore humble yourselves 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" (NKJV)
Challenges? Suffering? Disappointments? I’ve had a few.
I’ve grieved through watching more than one loved one suffer and die. I’ve worried about my own health issues. I’ve been disappointed by others whom I held in high regard. I’ve suffered through emotional trials with feelings of loneliness, anger, worry, and fear. I have learned that these feelings have the power to make you grow bitter or better.
Why is there a need for humbling ourselves in difficult times? Because of the notion that we can handle things by ourselves. When it comes right down to it, it is hard to “let go and let God”. Few of us know what it means to cast ourselves totally upon the Lord until He yanks the rug out from under us through some trial that is bigger than us.
Lord, I believe; but help me in my times of unbelief! Amen
