A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, September 15


1 Peter 5: 6-7


Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

We can’t really expect God to help us if we don’t admit we need his help. When I am carrying a burden, it is most painful when I feel I am alone. It is so incredibly comforting to know God is waiting to take on those burdens. I know He will not solve every problem I have just by my asking. But I am never alone, and I can have courage and comfort when I ask God.

Father God, thank you for these words today. I need you, and I ask you to be with me and give me strength and peace. I cannot live this life without you. I need you every hour of every day. Amen


Becky, transforming

1 Peter 5: 6-7 Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Yes,there is a God, yes,there is much suffering. Yes, there is pain in this world. Yes, and the good news is there is hope. There is a God who cares about us. He actually put His only son right into the mess and darkness and gave up his life to take away the pain of our sins. As believers, the peace he offers us will help through any suffering we see and feel. For a long time I was sure that all my fear and struggles were caused by my own sins and was of no concern to God. God has blessed and loved me in so many ways, accordin…

1 Peter 5:6-7 7. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. As a person with control issues, it has taken me many years to learn to “give it to God.” I like to solve my own problems, even though I know God often does a better job. I do know he cares for me even when I don’t turn to him. I also know that it is God who takes my anxiety and relieves me of it. He does such a better job. I don’t need to carry my burdens alone. God is always there beside me. Prayer, Gracious God, remind me to turn to you first when I am overwhelmed. Amen.

Heavy burdens. Sometimes they feel as if life will never be the same. I pray and all I hear in my head is my asking God for his help. I do cast my anxieties on him and wait for him to help me, because I don’t always know how to fix the problem. God knows my hopes and dreams and he knows my bad side too and still loves me. Just being able to talk to God and know he hears me is a wonderful gift.


Dearest Lord, I…

Cast all your anxiety on him -- this can be a very difficult thing to do. I want to work on my burdens now and Jesus may be on a whole different schedule. There is a non-biblical saying that God helps those who help themselves. The bible teaches us the opposite, that god helps the helpless. This is my test of faith. To let God’s will be done on earth.


Dear Lord we have had a very rough 10 days. Help us to have the strength of faith to…
