Humble Yourself and Cast Your Anxiety On the Lord

1 Peter 5:6-7: 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." ESV

Bible Commentary Note: God knows what He’s doing in our lives. Don’t submit to circumstances but to the Lord who controls circumstances.

Similar verses: Ps. 37:5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will act.
Ps. 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord and He will sustain you.
Ps. 40:17 God is our helper and our deliverer.

Bible Commentary Note: Humbly obey God regardless of circumstances and in His good time, either in this life or in the next, He will lift you up. Jesus humbled Himself completely when He died on the cross and God exalted Him to the highest heaven.

God is faithful. God is trustworthy. And He cares for you. You CAN let go. Humbly admit that you can't fix things and cry out to God.  Cast your anxieties on the Lord. You weren't meant to bear the burdens that are causing anxiety and fear in your heart. Throw off everything enslaving you and let it land on God. He's big enough to handle it!
