“ Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,  Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” I Peter 5:6-7 (AMPC)
Our Father God loves us so much. He has not designed our bodies to carry worry. The world (media, people) around us wants to fill us with fear. We are constantly surrounded by bad and worrisome news. Medical science has also confirmed that some physical ailments are rooted in emotional anxiety or worry.
Application For The Day:
Cast (throw) all our worry, nervousness, unease, and concerns on God’s big broad shoulders. Give them to God and not go back and pick them up again.
Prayer For The Day:
Father God, Your word says that I should give You my cares. So, right now, Lord God, I give You all my cares. Father, I don’t have to list them because You already know what they are. I exchange my cares for Your strength. I exchange my cares for Your peace. Father, help me not to pick them up again, but trust totally in You and Your ability to resolve the issues, in Jesus’ Name.
