1 Peter 5:7 - Cast all your care upon Him, because He cares for you.
CAST= rhiptó in the greek and mean to throw, cast, spec. to throw off, toss.
Burdened down by the cares of this world? Why carry them anymore when Jesus commands you to cast them upon Him. Let them go! Trust God and let today be your day of release from ALL the temporary cares of this world.
In this text Peter gives us a specific remedy for worry and that is "GOD" dependence and not self reliance. He commands us to throw off worry and put on faith. Surrender ALL YOUR care to the Lord for He cares for you and what you are going through. Carry it no longer!
Jesus cares for you so why are you trying to carry life's heavy load of burdens yourself? There is a song that says: heavy load, heavy load, I got rid of my heavy load. How? Turning it over the Lord by faith! Trusing Him and taking Him at His word.
When we pour out our anxiety, fears and worries to the Lord our God in prayer, the burden is lifted and peace is released into our hearts, mind and spirit even in the midst of trouble.
Trusting God by faith allows us to rest assured in the promises of God's Word that there is nothing too hard for the Lord to handle for all things are possible with Him.
Have you ever felt that no one really understood you or really cared about you as they claim?Have you ever felt all alone in your sorrow or are you currently feeling alone in your sorrow and fears? Jesus cares!
Regardless of where we find ourselves in life we are never alone for God promises to never leave us nor forsake us, but to be with us always. No, we are NEVER alone! God is ever present help!
The lyrics to this song that Luther Barnes sings goes like this: Jesus cares when I'm burdened. Yes He cares when I'm all alone. Yes He cares when I'm in misery. Oh, He cares, He cares for me and He cares when I'm discouraged. Yes I know, I know Jesus cares. He cares for me, oh yes He does.
Jesus cares when I'm in sorrow and when my pain is so hard to bear. He cares about my situation. It's so good to know He's always there
When my days are dark as night, He'll be there to make it alright.
Yes I know, I know Jesus cares. He cares for me. Oh, yes I know He cares.
The words from this song must be the words that comes out of your mouth regardless of what your lot may be on today.
If God cared and loved us enough to give us Jesus as the atonement for our sins, would He not provide us the things needed for life and living?
Romans 8:32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't he also give us everything else?
Regardless of what comes against me, I have purposed in my heart that "JESUS CARES FOR ME' , I belong to Him and I have made up in my mind to continue on in life knowing that God has in the past, He will right now and in the future, carry all my burdens that I release unto Him and that I can truly trust Him to do just that for me while He works all things together for my good as I patiently wait on Him and trust Him in the process.
Throw off every heartache, burden, fear, depression, anxiety and worry out of your hearts and minds on today people of God and replace them with the promises found in God's Word.
God's Word declares to you this day and everyday that He cares for you! The Word of God does like change. it is the same yesterday, today and forever.
God is concerned about you people of God. Worry no more! Trust God in the process!
