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.
Be self-controlled and alert.
Your enemy the devil prowls around
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
~1 Peter 5:6-8~

Devotional, Scripture, and a Song
“Bringing Our Friends to Jesus” – http://odb.org/
- When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” ~Mark 2:5~
- “Have Faith in God”
- Lyrics – http://www.hymnlyrics.org/newlyrics_h/have_faith_in_god.php
- Composer – http://cyberhymnal.org/bio/m/c/k/mckinney_bb.htm
- YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6FD9lZcJrM (Although I dearly love the melody of the song as it was writtenr, this kid-style version is catchy and teaches the same message)
I’m thankful for God’s Word/message and for those who can present it to us musically. The truths of my faith were reinforced as we opened those Broadman hymnals is a small church and sang from our hearts. I love to take time to focus on the words of each verse and each line.
