Turn It Over

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. 1 Peter 5:6-7 (ESV)

Many times we face problems and want to handle them all on our own. We figure we can deal with whatever comes our way without the help of God or others. As we encounter other people, we put on a mask to hide the fact that we are facing any issues.

We forget that God cares for us. He has a plan to build us up at the right time. He tells us to put all of our worries on Him. We are not meant to carry the burden of our struggles. He is bigger than all of our problems. As we focus on Him, our problems look small in the light of eternity.
