I am so glad that this verse:
"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:"
is followed by this verse:
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
(I Peter 5:6-7)
I don't really like to humble myself;
However, I do like casting my cares on Him.
Humbling myself is difficult;
But carrying my own cares is even more difficult.
When I am willing to submit to His will, I can release those worries and needs to His control;
And then I rest in His care.
So, why would I choose to be stiff-necked and rebellious toward a loving Heavenly Father Who promises to take care of me?
(Yeah...I don't know either.)
It's not a good choice, but it's one I sometimes make.
I always thought this was such a trite saying, but it seems full of meaning today:
"Let go...and let God."
Thank you, Lord, for the reminder.
May I not stubbornly hold on to my life.
Rather, let me humble my will to Yours, Father, and give to You all the burdens weighing so heavily on my mind and heart today.
Blessings to you, my bloggy friend,
