Food for the Soul ~ I Peter 5:7
Right before this verse in the Bible, the author~ Peter, implored his readers to "humble themselves, therefore, under God's almighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time." Before we cast our cares on Him, we need to realize that we can't handle everything alone and were never meant to. We need to approach the Almighty humbly, seeking His guidance and grace.
I tend to take on more and more, eventually bending under the weight of "what ifs" and other things I have no control over. Most days, I'm ashamed to say, it doesn't even occur to me to go to Him with the things I deem too tedious for His attention, yet occupy my every thought. How prideful is that? He made me and knows my innermost thoughts. Nothing is hidden from Him, yet He desires for us to come to the end of ourselves and realize our utter dependence on Him. Today, I choose to come before His throne with humility seeking His favor, His guidance, His healing touch. As we've seen time and again, He longs to satisfy our needs. Why not humble ourselves to truly seek Him?
Have a blessed week, sweet friends. Is there anyway I can pray for you this week?
