Cast those cares!
Scripture reading for November 13th: Ezekiel 2-5, 1st Peter 5
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.”
Living in faith requires humility. We who believe must entrust all of our lives to God–the good and the trials of suffering. We must stay alert to the tricks of the enemy of our souls and resist the fear he tries to stir up. God cares for you and has promised to exalt you at the proper time. Cast those cares and resist the devil and his roars!
Ezekiel 2:6 “And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for caring for me and the promise of eternal life with You. Help me to cast all my cares and worries on You today. Amen.
