Daily devotional: Give all worries and cares to God

Scripture
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:6-7 NLT

Observation
We're not all that we might think we are. God calls us to serve each other in humility (v.5), and humble ourselves under God's mighty power (v.6). But what is awesome is that by humbly recognizing our desperate need for Him, He unleashes His mighty power as He cares for us. No matter what we are anxious, concerned, or worried about, we can give it all to God, for He cares for you and me!

Application
Give God all my worries and cares. Humbly submit to Him and trust in Him to powerfully work in every situation.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, I submit to You in humility and in desperate need of You. I belong to You, along with the talents and skills, money and things You have entrusted to me. I hold them all with loose hands and trust You that it might all be for Your glory. I give You my cares about my car's mechanical functionality and ask that You continue to provide transportation for me. Please direct that situation for Your greatest glory. I also give You my concern about leading Faithbridge wisely, effectively, and strategically in technology exactly where You want to take us and use us. I love you!
