1 Peter 5:7

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”

Insight:

Carrying your worries, stresses, and daily struggles by yourself shows that you have not trusted God fully in your life. It takes humility, however, to recognize that God cares, to admit your need, and let others in God’s family help you. Sometimes we think that struggles caused by our own sin and foolishness are not God’s concern. But when we turn to God in repentance, he will bear the weight even of those struggles.

Prayer:

Jesus, guard our hearts against the pride, and shame, that causes us to turn away from you when we need help. Help us bring you all our hurts and hang-ups, and humble ourselves before you.
