He Cares for You

1 Peter 5:7: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

Sometimes when we feel anxious, we withdraw from people and from God. We think we can solve our problems all by ourselves and don’t want anyone to see us feeling anxious.

Years ago, my tendency was to hold everything in and pretend everything was fine. I learned that solved nothing.

Now I tell God what I think and feel. Anyway he knows. When I cast all my anxiety on God, I feel better. Right now I’m working on my taxes. God knows I dislike paperwork and tend to worry about getting the taxes done on time.

I cast all my tax anxiety on God, and he has shown me how to work on my taxes one section at a time.

I thank God I followed this verse because 1 Peter 5:8 tells us “The devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

I’ve concluded that either I cast all my anxiety on God or the devil will devour me.

What will you do with your anxiety?

Dear God, help me believe you care for me. Amen.

Application: When will you cast all your anxiety on God?
