A dear brother is in the midst of a hard circumstance, and I was drawn to 1 Peter 5:7 as a reminder about God’s care for us and his command that we cast our anxieties on him. Those few verses around verse 7 are packed with hope!
And it concludes with a tremendous promise – God himself will do great things for us!
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And 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. 1 Peter 5:6-10
