Devotion for September 11

1 Peter 5:6-7Contemporary English Version (CEV)

“6 Be humble in the presence of God’s mighty power, and he will honor you when the time comes. 7 God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him.”

We live in a world where people say they believe in God but live for themselves. Belief in God should bring about fear from the knowledge of God’s power, but no, this is not the case for most of the world. We believe in a benevolent God that loves us but cannot accept the fact that we do not honor him unless we humble ourselves before him in total surrender of self and when we fail we should be afraid even tho God is merciful.

Let us return then to hiding ourselves at least like Adam and Eve. Even satan has to bow down before God. What will it take for us to be humble before God
