FOCUS VERSE


1 Peter 5:7 (NKJV)

Cast all your CARE upon Him,

 for He cares for you.


CARE


Anxieties, burdens, and worries.

 To be anxious beforehand about dailylife.

Such worry is unnecessary, because the Father's love provides for both our daily needs and our special needs

In Context


1 Peter  5:5-11 (NKJV)


5) Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”


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. 


10)  But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered (endured) a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 


11) To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT CARE


Matthew 6:25-34 (NKJV)


Do Not Worry


25) “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 


26) Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 


27) Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?


28) “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 


29) and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 


30) Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?


31) “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 


32) For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 


33) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.


34) Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble

1 Peter 5:5-7


TRUTH IN ACTION

TRUTH:

Growing in Godliness

The Book of 1 Peter challenges us to live godly lives, even in the midst of trial, suffering, or persectuion. Circumstances do not affect godly principles for living. Whether you are being loved or cursed, you are to bless. Whether you will be embraced or persecuted, your life and testimony are to witness to the hope of salvation in Jesus Christ. Consistensy in godly living, despite circumstances, is the true test of growth in godliness.


ACTION:

LIVE IN HUMILITY with all people. UNDERSTAND that pride will cause God to resist you, so repent and turn from it. HUMBLE YOURSELF, knowing that God will give yougrace and lift you up in His time. GIVE God your anxieties. KNOW WITH CONFIDENCE that He will care for you.

Supporting Scripture

for 1 Peter 5:5-7

John Maxwell 


The Law of Sacrifice:

Leaders Humble Themselves to Be Exalted 

To the degree that we display pride, God removes His grace from us. The leader is to humble himself by casting all his cares on God (1 Peter 5:7). Only then does God promise to exalt the leader. What do you find yourself doing these days - humbling yourself, or feeding your pride?


The Maxwell Leadership Bible

Pastor Greg Laurie


Because God has adopted you into His family, He has promised to take care of you. Your Father knows you need many things, so do not worry about that.  Instead, focus on seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all of these other things - what you will eat, drink, wear, and live in - will be added to (Matthew 6:33). So cast your worries, concerns and anxieties on the Lord. God will take care of you, for you are His child. Your Father loves to bless you! Jesus told us to come to him with our burdens (Matthew 11:28) . 


START! The Bible For New Believers

Pastor Bill Johnson


In Matthew Chapter 4, Jesus first declared the repentance message. People came from all over, bringing the sick and diseased, in tormented and handicaped. Jesus healed them all.

After the miracles He gave the most famous sermon of all time: the Sermon on the Mount. It is important to remember that this group of people just saw Jesus heal all kinds of sickness and perform mighty deliverances. Is it possible that instead of giving commands on the new way of thingking Jesus was actually identifying for them the transformation of heart they had just experienced?

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is thekingdom of heaven" (Matthew 5:3). How would you describe a people who left cities for days at a time, traveling great distances on foot, abandoning all that life involves, only to follow Jesus to some desolate place. And there He would do what they had thought impossible. The hunger of their hearts pulled a reality from the heart of God that they didn't even know existed. Can their condition be found in the Beatitudes? I think so. I call them "poor in spirit." And Jesus gave them the promise manifestation of the Kingdom with healing and deliverance. He then followed the miracles with the Sermon, for it was common for Jesus to teach so He could explain what He had just done.

In this case, the actual presence of the Spirit of God upon Jesus strirred up a hunger for God in the people. That hunger brought a change in their attitudes without their being told it should change. Their hunger for God, even before they could recognize it as such, had created a new perspective in them that even they were unaccustomed to. Without effort to change, they had changed. How? The Kingodm comes in the presence of the Spirit of God. It was His presence they longed for. For them it didn't matter if He was doing miracles or just giving another sermon, they just had to be where He was. Hunger humbles. Hunger for God brings about the ultimate humility. And He exalted them at the proper time (1 Peter 5:6) with a taste of His dominion.


When Heaven Invades Earth

Joyce Meyer

Putting the Word to work

To humble yourself "under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you" (1 Peter 5:6) means to ask the Lord for what you need and then wait on Him to provide as He sees fit, knowing that His timing is always perfect. Are you humbling yourself under His hand in every situation of your life and trusting that He knows what is best for you? He has great plans for you, so I encourage you to be still, stop striving, and allow Him to show you how to cooperate with His purposes for you.

Also, be sure to cast all your cares upon the Lord (see 1 Peter 5:7). Do not worry about anything because staying peaceful is actually proof that you have humbled yourself and that you trust God to do what needs to be done.

Meaningful Words

Read Acts 20:19

Humility

Modesty, lowliness, humble-mindedness, a sense of moral insignificance, and a humble attitude of unselfish concern for the welfare of others. It is a total absence of arrognace, conceit, and haughtiness. Only by abstaing from self

 elevation can followers of Jesus maintain unity and harmony.


Read 2 Corinthians 7:6

Downcast

Metaphoricaly, the word signifies low estate, lowly in position and power, humble.


Read Matthew 18:4

Humbles

Metaphorically, the word means to debase, humble, lower oneself. It describes a person who is devoid of all arrogance and self-exaltation - a person who is willingly submitted to God and His will.


Read James 4:10

Lift Up

This verb signifies to lift or raise up. It is used literally (John 3:14; 8:28; 12:32; 12:34); figuratively, of spititual privileges given to a city (Matthew 11:23; Luke 10:15); and metaphorically, in the sense of exalting or uplifting (Acts 2:33; 5:31; 13:17). The Bible warns us that exalting ourselves will result in a disgraceful fall, but humbling ourselves leads to exaltation in this world and in Heaven.



I live in VICTORY because I cast all my care 

upon Jesus, for He cares for me

1 Peter 5:5-7

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Weekly Bible Study

The Message of the Kingdom


The first call of the kingdom is to repentance. The implications of biblical repentance are threefold:

  1.  Renucitation and Reversal
  2. Submission and Teachability
  3. Continual Shapeability

There is no birth into the kingdom without hearing the call to salvation, renoucing one's sin, and turning from sin toward Christ the Savior (Acts 3:19).


There is no growth in the kingdom without obedience to Jesus' commandments and childlike reponsiveness as a disciple of Jesus, yielding to the teaching of God's Word (James 1:21-25).


There is no lifelong increase of fruit as a citzen of the kingdom without a willingness to accept the Holy Spirit's correction and guidance (Ephesians 4:30)


If you would like to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, say and mean the simple prayer below and you will be saved.


Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner. I have broken Your commandments and fallen short of Your standards. Right now I turn from that sin and ask You to come into my life. Be my Lord, Savior, friend, and God. I put my faith in Jesus Christ, and in Him alone, to save me from my sins. Thank You for loving me and calling me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
