1Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
There are so many things going on in the world and on top of all those things, you have your own worries and concerns. You could be worried about what school to go to or what sport to go out for. Maybe you’re even worried about your upcoming History test. Worries and cares can easily burden you to the point where you don’t feel you can keep going on.
There’s one thing to do with cares and worries which is to throw them away from you. Throw them from you to God. When a fisherman casts a net or a fishing line, he forcefully throws it away and leaves it there. Visually that’s what we do with our cares. We throw them from us to God.
Let God catch your cares like you catch a ball. And God won’t throw them back to you and say “sorry, I don’t know what to do with it or sorry, I’m too busy to catch your care today.” Why? Because God is God. He can handle all your cares and everybody else’s too. Not only can He do it because He is God, but He wants to handle it for you because you’re His favorite kid and He’s your loving Daddy. So the next time you are tempted to worry and carry a care, stop and talk to your Father.
Pray: Father, because I believe you care- because this Scripture says You do. So instead of trying to hold onto this care, I give it to You. And I leave it with You to work it out. And I walk away from the care today. And whenever I think about it I picture You have my care and I don’t have it anymore. Thank you for working it out.
