1 Peter 5:7 – “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
The dictionary meaning of the word ‘cast’ is, to discard or throw something forcefully in a specified direction. In today’s verse, Peter reminds us to cast all our cares on the Lord. Sometimes, we get stressed and take it out on those around us. Or we end up in difficult situations and struggle to get out of it. We know God is able to carry our burdens and solve our problems, but He is often our last resort.
If you’re going through troubled waters and you don’t see a way out, don’t hesitate to take it to the Lord in prayer. You can cast ALL your burdens on the Lord – you don’t have to deal with it alone. God does not want you to bring Him only your big issues, but even the little ones. God cares about all of you – He wants to be involved in all your life, on the good days and the bad.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for loving me as I am and caring for me. I’m sorry for all those times I looked to other avenues for help, rather than to You. I want to be in constant communion with You – whether I’m down in the dark valleys or up on the glorious mountaintops. I trust that You can handle everything I’m going through. Help me rest in Your promises. In Jesus’s Name, Amen!
