Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 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. (1 Peter 5: 5-7, KJV)
As followers of Jesus, we should humble ourselves unto the Lord. As we humble ourselves by way of letting go of unnecessary weights, God will exalt us as we do His will. God cares for us when we put our trust in Him. As the scriptures says in the Word of God, as I rephrase it for understanding, we walk by faith and not by the things we see outwardly. As we take into consideration what the Word of God says, we will see the results of our faith in God. Let us not be distracted by the things of the world, but to concentrate ourselves in the Word of God and to make it applicable to our hearts.
