Hey, this is Bob Weiner of Weiner Ministries International and this is God Today. I am excited about telling you about something that changed my life.
I was trying so hard as a young person to win the world. At 38 years old, after starting about 18 churches, I had a heart attack. I said, “Lord, why did this happen?” He said, “Pride.” I said, “Pride? I walked in humility, Lord.” He said, “But, there is a higher form of pride. You’ve carried the burden of your ministry on your own shoulders and that’s the highest form of pride there is.” He took me to 1 Peter 5:5-7, “Greater race goes to the thumble. Humble yourself by casting all your cares, worries, anxieties on me, and greater grace will be released into your life.”
So, here’s the secret, here’s what I want you to get a hold of. If you want power beyond your own ability then you need to humble yourself. How do you humble yourself? By casting all your cares, worries, anxieties on Jesus everyday. When you cast all your worries, anxieties on Jesus everyday – that is humility. Greater grace will be released into your life. This is a revelation that will change your life. By faith you enter into grace and you stand through the abundance of grace, you reign in this light. If you start moving in your own strength, you move back under the law and you are on your own, baby.
I want to pray for you in these last few seconds. Lord, I bind up self-sufficiency and Lord, I pray that we will all understand that without you we can do nothing. In the name of Jesus, I rebuke that spirit that says we can do it on our own, that we don’t need the help. That says, “Yes, we love Jesus, but we are just going to do it our way.” Lord, we bind up that independent, rebellious spirit, and we say, “Lord, we are going to cast all our cares, anxieties, worries on you everyday for this is true humility.” When we humble ourselves by casting our cares on you, you release greater grace into our life. God bless you. We love you, let’s go forth in Jesus’ name.
