HUMBLE YOURSELVES UNDER HIS MIGHTY HAND

1 Peter 5:6-7 [NET]
6 And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand 7 by casting all your cares on him because he cares for you.


One of the reasons children do not worry and become anxious is because they absolutely trust in their parents to take care of their needs. This is because children are the meekest human beings you can find. God wants us to be like little children in the way we trust Him (see Mat 18:3).

We can learn from today’s Bible text that, casting all our cares on God is a product of humility and meekness. Anxiety is a result of the inherent pride brought by the knowledge of good and evil. Before humankind had the knowledge of good and evil of the forbidden fruit, it was impossible for humans to be anxious and faithless.

When you humble yourself under God’s mighty hand, it means you acknowledge that even though you may not understand what is happening, God is in control and is working out the best for you because you are His child. It is pride that makes us seek to ‘take our destinies into our own hands’ and “do anything” to improve our lot. This does not mean we become irresponsible people who use ‘trusting God’ as an excuse to be lazy, it simply means that whatever we do in our situation of need, we do it with the background knowledge that God is in control. And everything we do must be sanctioned by God. We do not do anything that is against His law to help ourselves.

Go into today remembering that the way to humble yourself under God’s mighty hand is by casting all your cares upon Him and ceasing to worry and be anxious. Remember that God will exalt you in due time.
