Challenges come in different sizes and shapes. What do your challenges look like today? Do you hesitate to bring your challenges to God? Perhaps you bring God the big challenges, where you know only He can make a difference. Perhaps you hesitate to bring the smaller challenges to Him, thinking that He wants you to show You can handle them. Remember Peter’s exhortation, and trust God with every challenge, big or small. This is key to exalting God only instead of edging God out.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.—1 Peter 5:6-7
5 God, I humble myself before You in this moment, declaring that I am dependent on Your wisdom and strength and power to meet every challenge facing me. Thank You for taking my anxiety and giving me confidence. May You be exalted in my life and in the eyes of others. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
