Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22
Caring can be something that is good, or it can be something that is bad. Caring in a way that is meeting someone or something’s need is a good thing. Caring in a way that is worrying about something or someone is the opposite of good caring.
All over the world, people are caring (worrying) about something. The level of care about something is different for each person. Some are worried about how to pay the next electricity bill, while others are caring about how they will look in an outfit at the next meeting. The list for what people care about is endless.
With many of these cares, people are shaken. They are scared that things will go from bad to worse. They are scared that the problem will only get worse.
Everyday people are faced with things that concern them, some very large, while others are small. The size of the concern is all a matter of perspective. The person who makes a six digit income does not care about the electricity bill as much as the person who is living on welfare.
Believers in Jesus need to have the correct perspective on what they care about. God is larger than the largest problem that any person could ever possibly have. He already has a plan to meet every care that a person could ever have.
You do not need to be like most of the world and get shaken about some problem or care in your life. You need to take that care and cast it onto Jesus. He is there to carry all the burdens of the world, that includes all of your burdens also.
Do not allow yourself to be shaken with fear at some care that has come up. God’s love will remove all that fear and He will sustain you through the situation.
God owns everything, so let Him carry the cares of this world. Just trust Him and obey what He tells you to do.
Don’t take on the burden of carrying all your cares, let God do it for you.
I pray today that you will trust God to care for you; that you will cast all your cares on Jesus; that you will know God’s peace in your life; and that God will not allow you to be shaken.
