Jeremiah 51-52, 1 Peter 5
6Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
Definitely needed to hear that the lord cares for me, so cast all my anxieties on him. Resist the devil. After suffering, the lord will restore, confirm, strengthen, & establish me. ❤️
6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
The lesson on humility is one I need often. Lord help me to show others the grace and mercy you show me- not having contempt for anyone because they are not doing the same things as me or because I don’t immediately see that value in what they are doing. Being a Christian is about love, not judgement. Create in me patterns of LOVING first before anything else.
10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Jeremiah ends with closure and sadness as what God has warned all comes to take place. He has done just as He cautioned He would. Although it is tragic there is much goodness in this. As Isaiah 55:11 states, God’s Word does not go out void. It is powerful. It accomplishes all He sovereignly ordains.
7casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
