Cast your cares!
Scripture reading for November 13th: 1st Peter 5, Psalm 81-82, Proverbs 11
Key Scriptures: 1st Peter 5:6-9 “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.”
Peter mentioned suffering many times in his short letter. He recognized the warfare that he and the church faced each day in a world hostile to God and His followers. All Christ-followers must stay humble and under God’s protection. All fears, cares and concerns must be given to God in prayer. Satan must be resisted by strong faith in God and His Word. This is universal instructions for all believers of all times.
Faith Confession: I remain humbly dependent on God to face the trials of life I experience each day on my earthly journey. I purpose to cast all my cares on God and live by faith in His answers and protection.
Psalm 81:13-14 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies and turn My hand against their foes.”
