For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)—[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.
6 Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,
7 Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
Grace is the power of God to change everything in our life! We all face situations that are too much for us to figure out, that are in need of God’s touch. Notice the beginning of verse 7, God gives us the answer to receiving his grace. We are to simply cast our cares and worries to Him. We live in a society where to worry and take on our burdens is considered responsible, and of course we are not to be unwise and reckless, but God looks at our worry and calls it pride! It’s a tough reality to accept, but worry is us saying, I can take care of this God, I trust myself to carry this weight, I don’t think You’re quite capable for this problem. Think of a situation that weighs you down today. God’s grace is the power to change that situation around! God is inviting us to stop trying and start trusting! When we humble ourselves, trust God and stop yielding to fear, His grace begins to flow!
