For the recipients of Peter’s first letter, anxiety and worry were just as common as they are today. Instructing believers who faced persecution, Peter called them to humble themselves before God and cast their cares upon Him. Alistair Begg reminds us that the presence of humility is directly related to the absence of anxiety. While we may not be able to remove the causes of our fear, the Lord assures us that He cares for us and will help us.
