“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7, NKJV.
Like an adamant solicitor, our cares call to us louder and louder to get our attention, including what we consider good things to care about. However, we end up becoming men burdened, depressed, wasting time worrying, and distracted while trying to figure out what to do.
God wants every care to be far from you. In the midst of it all, He wants you to cast your care upon Him and live a free life, full of His joy and peace. He wants you to thrive in your relationship with Him. Let the Father work out all of the knots you need untied in your life. He knows the sum of your needs and desires. God will not only take your cares upon Him, but He will surely do something about them all. Why? Because He cares for you. He really does care about what you’re going through.
Humble yourself and put your faith in your Provider, your Way-Maker, and give it all over to Him. Develop a habit of going to God and casting every care to Him when they arise, and be determined to live free in Christ. He surely will come through for you.
Prayer: Father God, because You care for me, I thank You that I can cast my cares, every one of them, upon You. I see the devil’s scheme to load me down with cares. I will trust in You the Almighty God. I praise You now! I will go on serving You and enjoying a free life in Christ! Help me to continually stand on the truth that You do care. You will help me, and before it even works out, I thank You in advance. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
