He Cares for Our Cares

 

December 23

 

Read 1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

 

Reflect

How does knowing that Jesus cares for you give you peace?

 

I am sure you've heard the phrase "not a care in the world." But when is the last time you can honestly say that you've felt that way? Most adults have so many responsibilities and are under too much pressure to succeed. We are aware of the evil in the world around us. We know how quickly things can take a turn for the worse. As a result of all of this and more, for many people, having even just a few moments without a care in the world is a rare experience.

 

And yet, Peter tells us there is a way to be rid of our cares. He said to cast all of your anxiety on Jesus. To "cast" means "to throw." When you cast something, the idea is to get it as far away from you as possible.

 

Friends, we should be casting off our fear and anxiety. We do not need to carry those burdens. In fact, Jesus has offered to carry this burden for us because He loves us!

 

How can we "cast off" or "throwaway" our cares and give them to Jesus? One way would be to write down the worries that we feel. Then, spend time in prayer, giving those specific fears to the Lord. Ask Him to carry those burdens for you. Then, crumble up the paper and toss it in the trash.

 

Cast all of your anxieties on Him. He can bear the burden for you. He can handle it. And He cares about You more than you can comprehend.

 

 

Pray

God, I know that You are strong and mighty. You can carry the weight of all the burdens that I am struggling to carry. I am casting off my worries and tossing them onto You. Thank You for bearing my burdens for me. Amen

Your peace is what I need during this season. Lord Jesus, Your peace is offered as I cast all of my burdens upon You. So today I cast every anxiety of mine upon You in exchange for Your peace.
I learned long ago to cast your cares on Him, but over the years I have found myself casting some of the same problems over again. I needed to hear this over again, this time I will trust that I have thrown them away.
Thank you God for taking care of me, here is my burden take it you can do it all.
Thank you for this. Knowing God loves me and can take of my storms, does give relief. I try not to carry these burdens. My God tells me to hand them over to him. Amen

Amen, Heavenly Father you know and see my worries and I don't mean to be that way, I know in my heart you are here for me and will take what I worry about the most away, in your time. I thank you father and appreciate everything you have given me in my life, from the time I was born until the time I go away.

Lord I choose to cast all my cares upon You and let You work them all out for my good, because I love You Lord. I am grateful You care about me and what I am going through. Your love for us is non stop. Lord I trust You to take care of all my burdens once I totally cast them over to You and allow You to do Your will. Thank You Lord. In the mighty mighty name of Christ Jesus I pray, Amen.
This is just what I need for what I am going through thankyou
Thanks for the devotion today
Casting all my problems on Jesus makes me feel at times immature or spoiled. I know Jesus can handle my problems because he is God and can do all things. The concept of giving my problems to Jesus seems irresponsible, kind a of the game of hot potato and passing the problem to the next person. I want to praise Jesus not make him suffer! It’s like making your best friend suffer to relieve your pain. I know this thinking is wrong but most of my fears are self inflicted and I feel guilty of always putting them on Jesus. My prayer is to stop sinning and causing so much worry so I can show Jesus I learning to trust and obey him more. Lord help me not to be proud but humble and dependent on you. Amen
Jesus, I lay my fears, anxiety, and worry at your feet. You taught your apostle Paul, “...my Grace is sufficient for thee...” Please remove my unbelief...
I'm thankful that you are willing to carry my burden.
Thank you Lord for carrying my burdens. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Thank you Pastor Nat for reminding/encouraging me today of this wonderful promise of God "to cast all my anxiety on Him because He cares for me"! Sometimes I tend to forget this, and feels as if I am carrying the burdens of this world on my shoulders! Thanks be to God Who has given me the victory and liberty that's found only in Him!!
Thank you God for loving us so much taking our burdens away
I needed this. Every once in a while I walk over to the can, retrieve the paper, flatten it out and put it back in the stack. He is so faithful to point it out though, we talk for a bit, and finally I throw it in the can for good. Praise Him.
Dear Abba Father, Dear Jesus, I Love you, I worship you, you are the King of Kings, dear Father God! My worries and anxieties often take control of me, Dear God, I feel so weak and unworthy. There is so much preparation. I know nothing needs to be perfect but perfection thoughts take over me! Please help to be more in your word and understanding. Thank you for this message. Please help to cast away these burdens. Amen
Thank You God For Loving Me
