I Peter 5:6-7 — “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.” — Running right alongside the coronavirus epidemic is an epidemic of anxiety. People across our nation are worried about their health and about major disruption to their lives. How do we survive this epidemic? How can we rise above worry and fear and experience rest and peace in our hearts?
Anxiety is not a modern phenomenon. Christians in the first century had to face great pressure on a daily basis. Recognising this, the Apostle Peter wrote a wonderful letter to them and addressed this very issue. God will help His people with worry and fear. All they have to do is be humble enough to receive it.
We hope this message is a blessing to you in these difficult days.
