Casting Your Cares
Prayerfully, we have all have been able to see the many blessings that God has placed in our lives each day throughout this year. Although we have had many blessings, there are those who have experienced trials and sorrow; and we have also endured a great deal of tribulation in our world and our country. Prayerfully, as a result of these experiences, we have learned to cast our cares upon Him. We should not allow this quarter to close while we are still holding on to things that happened in the past. When we learn to cast our cares on Him, we will learn to let go of our cares. In 1 Peter 5:7, we find these words:
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
Peter records these words, telling the people not to worry or be anxious, but put their faith in God. He says in verse 6 that they need to be humble, and in verse 8 that they need to watch out for the devil. The Word of God says, “Resist the devil and he will flee.” (James 4:7 KJV). When we cast our cares on Him, the devil will flee, for he knows that he is no match for God. In all that we do, we should remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the word and the works of the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58) – and cast all of our cares on Him.
