In due time // 07-10-21

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter‬ ‭5:6-7‬ ‭NIV

As a Christian, rather than taking everything into my own hands, and believing it’s my job to fix me and the world around me, I can humble myself under God’s mighty hand, accepting that He is God and I am not! It takes trust because, ‘…in due time,’ suggests it’s not going to be in my timing and I may have to wait, but in the meantime I can cast all my cares, my concerns, my frustrations, my disappointments, the things that make me anxious, on Him, and know that He is still in control, that He loves me and wants the best for me, and even if I don’t understand the why’s or the how’s or the when’s, I can trust that He does! And I have the hope that at the right time He will lift me up. There’s a lot of peace that comes from truly trusting God. Lord, help me to be humble, honest, and patient as I trust in You today, aware of Your presence, and secure in Your promise. Amen 🙏🏼
