1 Peter 5
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Peter in the midst of his great call, accomplishments and failures reflected on his life and issued a mandate inspired by the Holy Spirit to Pastors, youngsters, and the body of Christ. Humility is the fundamental step in acknowledging God’s power, and respecting his sovereignty.  For the prideful, the soil will demand hard labor and the strength of man will see it’s limit. But, for those who remain in humility, he will see the great work of God’s hand working all things for the good of those who believe. (Pride is man’s strength, Humility is God’s power).
Don’t allow the prides of life to rob you this week from God’s best.  See God at work as you humble yourselves! Love you all.
