Weekly blessing from 1 Peter 5:6-7,
May you humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God that he may lift you up in due time. May you cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
There are a few points of this blessing that are significant to me:
1) The Mighty Hand of God. We are weak and feeble. We are often controlled by our passions and emotions. Yet, God is strong. When we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God - we become strong as well.
2) Due Time. We have a poor understanding of time. We want everything NOW. Yet, God's understanding of time perfect. When we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God - we gain God's perspective.
3) Cast all your anxiety. We can't handle anxiety. God is more than able.
4) He cares for you. It is worth repeating: He cares for you.
