Scripture of the Day - August 24, 2012

1 Peter 5:6  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Do we grasp the greatness of God? Do we grasp how much he loves us and cares for us? If we would only humble ourselves before Him and follow after ALL His ways, trusting Him enough to cast all our cares upon Him. Oh yes, we go to Him in prayer... but we pray doubting. How do I know? Because we continue to fret over our situations. I read somewhere "You don't get ulcers from what you eat. You get them from what's eating you." A believing Christian should not be stressed, especially to the point of sickness. As the old hymn goes...Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear. 
Cast your cares upon Him and reel in His peace...that peace which passes all understanding.
