The Give-Up Series
In this season of Lent on Good Friday, we draw near to the patience of God. We understand with due consideration the need to wait on the Lord. Our arms are too short to box with God, so let us humble ourselves under His mighty hand. He will exalt us in due time and season. Cast all our earthy cares on the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Encourage one another to be sober, vigilant. The devil wants to devour us because of our lack of inter-dependency on each other and the Lord.
1 Peter 5:6-8
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
God of My Strength, (2 Samuel 22:33), we have marginalized our humility; however, You keep us humble under Your hand, and for this we say in a spirit of oneness, thank You. As we cast our carnal cares upon You, we stand victorious and be free; for this, we praise You. We decree and declare blessings for the saints of God who stand sober and vigilant so that our adversary can not overtake us. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
