A Thought on 1 Peter 5

I would like to quote just 2 and half verses and comment on it: 1Peter 5: 5-7
"Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for 'God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.' Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares for you."

One of the most familiar passages in the Bible. But I never noticed the connection that the passage seems to make a connection between humility and being free of anxiety- it is the humble person who casts all his anxieties on God. Maybe I'm reading in a connection that is not there, but I don't think so.
