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. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
I Peter 5:6-11 NKJV
As a mother prepares her children’s lunches and sends them off into the day, I am grateful for the provisions You have ready for our day’s journey Lord Jesus. May I never take Your gifts for granted. You are never invasive, nor demanding, but loving, kind, and gentle, yet one to be honored and feared. Lead me Lord, lead my loved ones, protect us, our Shepherd, our King, amen
