“Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. [Ps. 55:22.]” 1 Peter 5:6-7
Humbling ourselves is only possible when we cast the whole of our concerns, cares, worries, anxieties and tasks into the Hands of the Lord.
When we are open to experiencing His care, that’s when humility takes the upper hand. The realization of being soaked in His unblemished love, is what eradicates pride, arrogance and depression from our lives.

Let me trust that you will exalted through this; for victory shows up when you take over. Breathe peace into my heart now Lord. In Jesus’ name – Amen”.
