“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” l Peter 5:6-7
Only if we are regularly casting our cares upon Him, can we stay humble. Humility comes by committing your dependency on Him. In such an act chosen, there is no fear and in turn there is no pride. Pride stinks to his nostrils, so every time we worry and hold on to burdens, troubles and pain of the past, we give Him no space to breathe the freshness of His Life.
When I am insulted, I need to cast my care of self-defense to Him who is My Defender.
When I am weak, I need to cast my care of “giving up” to Him who is Strong.
When I am without a penny, I need to cast my care of supply to Him who is Providence.
When I am waiting, I need to cast the care of pressure to Him who is Faithful.
When I am provoked, I need to cast the care of pride to Him who is Majestically Humble.
When I feel unloved, I need to cast my care for acceptance to Him who is Everlasting Love.
When I want my way, I need to cast my care of disobedience to Him, who Obeyed the Father to give His all.
“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time, casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” 1 PETER 5:6-7 AMP
