No matter how this year has panned out for you, whether it was filled by beautiful moments or challenges filled with tears and sorrows, let us remember that what matters to us, matters to God (1 Peter 5:7).
Many times in our success, we forget that it is God who lifts us, provides us with the wisdom, favors, strength and health. He is the one who allows us to have the opportunity to be in our successful position. Do we acknowledge Him in all our joyful and successful moments?
In our sorrow, it was God who loves us and cares for us but we may be too discouraged to notice His hand of provision uplifting us, protecting us. He is always there behind us, watchful of us even a word of prayer is all we could utter during the difficult times, He will hear us and uplift us with His mighty strength so we could wake with a new grace for another day.
So, whether this year has been a joyful or tearful year, let us keep on looking upon our God and continue to say our prayers because what matters to us, matters to God.
1 Peter 5:6 - Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up...
1 Peter 5:7 - Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:8 - Be alert and of sober mind...
