Casting Your Fears

May 8, 2020



Text in Context: Read 1 Peter 5:1-10

So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed:  shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly;  not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.  And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.  Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

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.  And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.


Reflect

What connections do you see between our submission, humility, and fear? What happens when we act in fear?

Respond

How can you humble yourself before God? What would change if you cast all your cares upon God?

Pray

Father, I can’t take this burden anymore. I’ve tried. It doesn’t work. Help me by taking all my fears. I trust you. Thank you. Amen.

"God oppress the proud but gives grace to the humble." Humble yourself. therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, . God likes the humble he gives grace, exalts you. It is best be under God's mighty hand.
Larry I will be Praying for You! Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, v12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age.
What connections do you see between our submission - I see submission as a private submitting to a five star General. humility - don’t think of yourself more highly than you ought. and fear? There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear. . . What happens when we act in fear? - We are not Trusting in God but ourselves! How can you humble yourself before God? By being weak and needy! What would change if you cast all your cares upon God? Peace and Tranquility
Thank you

Humbly I kneel before you Lord asking: "Have mercy on me O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion block out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from all my sin. Against You, You only, have I done what is evil in Your sight; so You are right in Your verdict, and justified when You Judge". (Psalm 51: 1,2,4). I now repent and ask Your forgiveness and help in letting go of all fear and insecurities; and live the abundant life you've called me to. Amen!
God i am cast 🙏 all my care in you
