We Are Going To Be OK
Updated: Dec 8, 2020
Humility is a fruit of the Spirit that should be the goal of all Christians. God gives grace to be humble as well as wisdom, faith, understanding and holiness.
There are many places in Scripture that remind us that the cares and concerns of this world can become a burdensome load in our lives. 'Pride' arrogantly announces that it is well-able to go it alone - but the Word of God paints a very different picture.
The Lord says we cannot manage our daily problems on our own, and this is a severe blow to our fleshly-pride. We need to come to a point when we humbly admit our inadequacy, before we can benefit from His super-sufficiency.
We are charged to hand over ALL our cares and disappointments to the Lord... Who has promised to bear ALL our burdens because of His loving-kindness and tender mercy towards us.
When we give ALL our cares and concerns of this world to the Lord in humility of heart, He pours into our life His peace that passes understanding, and we discover we have a godly wisdom, an enlarged faith, supernatural love, and His sufficient grace.. despite the circumstances that hem us in on every side.
Being called to cast ALL our anxieties on Him, does not mean giving Him selective burdens while withholding others. He cares about each compartment of life. God cares more for our personal well-being than anyone else - including ourselves!
The enemy of our soul whispers lies into our heart and question the goodness of God and His faithfulness. DON'T LISTEN...
Instead remember that Father-God, CARES very much for you... so cast ALL your burdens, disappointments, and worries that seem to be flooding your life today... on HIM.
Have you depended on your own sufficiency and tried to work out your own problems in your own self-sufficient strength?
If so... I encourage you to draw on the Lord's amazing strength today and in the days that lie ahead... for He Cares for you and for America...
Believers are going to be OK no matter what happens!
“1 Peter 5:6-7 NIV 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
May we never doubt the integrity and truth of God's Word, for what He has promised He will fulfil. May we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us at the proper time - and may we cast ALL our anxiety on Him, because He cares for each one of His blood-bought children.
