Casting All Your Anxiety Upon Him

Casting All Your Anxiety Upon Him

Our LORD knows our every thought,  feeling,  care,  anxiety…….     And we know  how anxious we can get  when things don’t seem  to be going very well.     We become anxious  because we have absolutely no real control  over many situations  and don’t know what the future holds.     Oh, we might try  and do everything within our power,  but our efforts are as nothing.

One really big hang up for many  is that one doesn’t go  to God in prayer.     The thought might be  that one shouldn’t bother God with little things,  since He has more important things  to tend to.     But,  let’s face it.     That’s probably pride  wanting to give ourselves the credit  for doing something all by ourselves.

Everybody needs  to get over the desire  to be entirely self-sufficient.     After all,  we can’t even breathe  without God enabling  our every breath.

Throughout God’s word to us  are examples of those  who humbly put their trust  in the LORD God Almighty  and put their faith  in our Savior and Redeemer,  Christ Jesus.     The apostle Peter well knew  what it meant  to humbly trust  in God’s ways  through thick and thin.     So, he wrote for all of us  in 1 Peter 5:6-7,

Humble yourselves,  therefore,  under the mighty hand  of God,  that He may exalt you  at the proper time,  casting all your anxiety  upon Him,  because He cares  for you.

We can all look back on our lives  and recognize many times  when God has guided and protected us  in all sorts of situations.     As God has cared for us  in the past,  we should know  that He will care for us  in the future.

With everything concerning us  in God’s hands,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your loving care  is so wondrous  and awesome.     Thank You for leading us step-by-step  by Your almighty power.”

Love,
Margaret
