Good morning people who hand your cares over to the Lord
1 Peter 5:7 NIV Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Emotional well-being is an issue of our day. There are many contributing circumstances, and the answers are as varied as the causes of the anxiety.
Without focusing on ‘do this’ or ‘don’t do that’, let us simply come back to what God’s Word says repeatedly in many scriptures.
God says, “You don’t have to carry that burden, care, anxiety or worry. You can give it to Me, and you can let Me carry you and your troubles.”
Sometimes we minimise the power of casting all of our anxiety on God because we don’t see the situation or the feelings change. Yet the truth is, neither of these things change for the good when we carry it ourselves. Think about it.
The Bible tells us to ‘not worry about anything’, ‘be anxious about nothing’ and to ‘cast all your anxiety on Him.’ God is clear about this.
And I think it is important to focus on the second half of this verse too. It does not say ‘cast all your anxiety on Him because you are weak and helpless and don’t know what you are doing.’ The reason for casting it on God is not because of our lack, but because He cares for us. We need a revelation of this!
God cares for us and wants to carry what burdens us. That’s wonderful news!
So, will you give your anxiety to Him this year?
