Casting all your cares on Him, because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
Merrriam-Webster defines “Cast” this way: (1) to throw off or away (2) : to get rid of : discard
We all have our own “cares” we carry around with us – financial worries, concern for our children, uncertainty about the future, etc…. They distract us from the here & now and weigh us down. If I’m worried about something or someone, it can consume me and it keeps me from being effective for the LORD and enjoying the moment. God says to cast all our cares on Him, because He cares for us. He doesn’t say just give me the big stuff or the things you think I can handle. Nope, He says to cast them all. We all know that isn’t always easy to do, and once we do it is easy to take them back and try to figure them out and fix things ourselves. It doesn’t mean we are to do nothing, but it does me we shouldn’t worry about all the things we can do nothing about. I pray God will give us wisdom to walk this walk and teach us how to cast! Any anglers out there who could give some lessons????
