BE HUMBLE: REFLECTION FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID

REFLECTION BY JANE PIMENTA

All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." 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. 1 Peter 5:5-6

To be humble before God is to give up the controls. To let God control everything, and every area of our life. Not at all easy, it requires a tremendous amount of faith in God, that He will not let us down but work things out for our good. Often what God thinks is good for us clashes with our plans, and then it’s not humility at work in us, but pride that keeps us going the way we have decided to go!

In order to ‘Cast our anxieties on Him’ we need to be like little children, who are always willing to trust. Let us pray today asking Him for the grace to help us let go of all that we think is secure and working for us, and help us to step out in faith and follow the path He has chosen for us even though it may not be quite what we want!!
