He Understands

1 Peter 5:6-9 (NKJV)

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

       We need to walk under the mighty hand of God.  We have to stay connected to His love.  God knows our every need, so we need to hand it over to Him.  So many times we hold onto the challenges, the pain, the hurt, the loss, or the disgrace, but He wants us to cast it all to Him.  It is amazing to have a Heavenly Father that has a loving compassion for us that can never be matched.

We are going to be under attack from the adversary to try to disconnect us from the love of God.  Please stay connected to God!  Do not hold onto the pain; understand Jesus endured the pain on the cross for all your mistakes.  Hold out your hand and connect with Him, and when you hold onto His love you have let go of the trouble.

Thank Him for caring for you and allowing His love to connect with you.  Understand He now wants you to connect with others sharing the love He has not only for you, but for them also.  A testimony, a listening ear, an encouraging word, or spending time with them in prayer may lead them to know the Lord and help them connect to His love.  So share all that the Lord has done for you and wants to do through you.  Share His love and always give Him all the praise and the glory!
