Mighty, Merciful Hand

2/11/2014 / Devotionals
I was a teenybopper of the 1960's who followed fashion trends of madras shirts, short skirts, fishnet stockings and black flats footwear. I listened to 1260 WNDR AM Top 40 radio and bought my favorite songs on 45-RPM singles for ninety-eight cents. I was a typical teen; yet, I did not always follow the crowd.
The Rolling Stones were very popular but did not rank as one of my favorite groups. I did like many of the bands who crossed the big pond during the British invasion; the Stones were a bit too far out of my comfort zone. They have had many hit songs to their credit, including "Under My Thumb." I am not plugging the song; instead, I focus on their title....
In a generation of demanding our individual rights, the image of being under anyone's thumb is degrading. The very idea of anyone doing a power play in our lives is repulsive. True, we do have inalienable rights bestowed on us by our Creator. No man should walk all over us; yet, being under God's authority is far different. We can trust God to LORD over us.
"Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, 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 (1 Peter 5:6-7 Amplified Bible)."
