I Peter 5:7: 'Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.'
I must say this scripture has spoke volumes in my life this week! Here's what I've learned...
Casting means to literally throw upon or to place upon. So many times I have brought my burdens and cares and worries to God, but have I been casting them on Him? I think what I've more or less been doing is just bringing them to God's attention. What I mean is that I pray about them and tell Him what's going on, but when I leave my place of prayer, the cares of life go with me. I never really cast them, or throw them upon Him and walk away in confidence...knowing that He is going to take care of them.
As I sat in church this morning, I couldn't help but realize that God was asking me to just let go of my cares and worries and throw them upon Him. If I were to be real transparent and honest here, I'd admit that there was an immediate release of some sorts just by the 'act' of throwing my cares. Hey, we're human and sometimes we just get enough and feel like throwing something. It was an instant feel good moment to just take some of the cares and anxieties that I've been dealing with and throw them upon a God who's never disappointed me. I walk away from the cares of life today and leave them in the hands of a never-failing God who cares for me.
My cares are in the best hands...Are Yours?
Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
