Cast Your Care

Posted By at Wednesday, August 21, 2019

There are many people who may appear to be carefree, but really have anxieties only God understands; money problems, employment issues, health challenges and marital concerns.

So to all of us, God says in 1 Peter 5:7 Transfer all your anxieties to me.

When we walk by faith, transferring the cares to our Heavenly Father, we receive answers to prayer that challenge human reasoning. And looking back, we're often amazed at how the Lord brought us out, and realise we couldn't have come up with a better solution ourselves.

Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you. He will never let the righteous fall.

We need to continually put ALL our troubles where we have put our sins. We have put our sins onto Jesus, so we must learn to put our troubles there also! 

As soon as the trouble comes, tell it to your Father in heaven! Don't put up with it for one second! Remember, the longer you take telling your trouble to God, (and the longer you wallow in it), the longer you will have to wait for peace. The longer the frost lasts, the more likely the ponds will be frozen over.

Matthew 11:28 Jesus said, "Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Putting our burden upon the Lord is the way to soothe sorrow, grief and anxiety. When we are troubled, we must learn to put our burden upon the Lord immediately! This day! Let Him carry it, He's the burden bearer. 

Life should be a joy and not a burden. We should live victoriously, ever master of our experiences, and not tossed by them like a leaf on the dashing waves. Every earnest Christian wants to live a truly beautiful life, whatever the circumstances may be.

Everything in the Word of God is a light and a blessing to me when I came to Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

I learned from a footnote that the Greek reads, 'Do not be anxious about tomorrow'. Cross-references point out that God says, "Do not worry."

If you've are worrying today, why not roll it over unto Him and become carefree.
