“Humble yourselves”. Reflection by Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid

Congratulations to Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid

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 5:6- 7  

 

Only when we are humble enough to let go and give what is bothering us into the hands of Jesus we become aware that He is all we need at any time in our life.  So many needs remain unmet for long periods of time, often we feel lonely even though there may be people around us, our situation is getting out of hand, in these moments we need to just give it all to Jesus and step aside and let Him work, and we will see that He is all we need.   We are so used to giving instructions, taking over responsibility, standing in for someone, and we bring this attitude into our relationship with Jesus too.  We tell Him what the problem is, and then we want to tell Him how to solve it !!  Therein is the delay and our frustration, and we then say “Lord why don’t you hear my prayer?”  

(Excellent.  Keep up the good work Jane)
