“casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” (I Peter 5:7, NKJV)
There is a wonderful hymn of the church that I love entitled, WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS. In this old hymn the writer pens the words, “Oh what peace we often forfeit, Oh what needless pains we bear, All because we do not carry, Everything to God in prayer.” I love that stanza.
When you think about it, these words are so true. We forfeit much peace and many blessings in life because we try to carry all our burdens and problems by ourselves. The word of God admonishes us to, cast, “all” our cares upon Him. For we have assurance that He cares for us.
Why carry around the weight of your burdens, struggles and issues. Take them to God in prayer. He beckons us, “Give it to me.” “Come to me.” “Cast it upon me.” Therefore, do not hold back. Do not try to do it all by yourself. You do not have to carry it all on your own. He is waiting for you. You can GIVE IT ALL TO HIM.
