Just Do This For All That? WOW Rewind from Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks for joining me for a break today. I always find encouragement when I do this, so I thought we could do it together; that is, go back to the monthly words of wisdom and weapons of warfare from 2011 and sort of rewind to see His fingerprints in our lives. Grab your coffee and come on in.

Last January, our WOW was from 1st Peter 5:6-7 and I had given a bit of history about why Peter was writing to the First Century Christians, who were so vulnerable because they often suffered great persecution and never really had a hometown, if you will because they were the first to break away and refuse to participate in Paganism.

Therefore,” (put your name in here), “humble yourself under the mighty hand of God” – STOP! This isn’t as complicated as we make it. When we begin the day by acknowledging His authority in our life, we begin crossing the bridge to get to the other side, which is under the mighty hand of God“that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him for He cares for you.”

In other words, just do this: Humble yourself – and all it takes is a willing heart – and He will do all this: exalt you, and because He will exalt you — lift you up and over your troubles– it will be easier to cast – which means to throw out far, like a fishing pole – your cares upon Him and He will take care of them because He cares for you!

Peter writes these words of instruction to encourage them, and to encourage us. Let’s allow these words to do just that because after all, our part in this equation is small in comparison to all He has done and will continue to do if we do just that . . .

Join me tomorrow as we compare then to now in this WOW.
