Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Anxiety is excessive worry or fear over something or group of things that go on in life. In the USA there are currently over 40 million people who suffer with anxiety in their lives. And these are just the ones that are documented. There are millions more who deal with anxiety at some level or more that never go to a doctor or counselor about it.

Although most will not admit it, many people like to worry, or at least they make it a major part of their lives. They stress over making enough money, or having the right stuff, doing a good enough job, looking just right, and much more. They fear getting sick, losing a job, war, theft, death, injuries and more. They worry about other people with all of the same worries and more.

People have extreme anxiety because they cannot control circumstances in their life or around them and they worry about it. The world does not know how to deal with that extreme anxiety, so they go to doctors and counselors and get prescription medications to help calm them down.

While many believers have anxiety, there is something that they can do outside of medication. They can cast those anxieties on the Lord. This casting is throwing as hard and fast as one can upon God. They can give all of those fears to God and let Him deal with them in His way and time.

God is the one who is in control of every situation in the life of a person. Instead of a believer trying to take control of things he cannot control, he must leave it up to God.

As a believer, you will have things that will stress you out and cause you to worry. Instead of having anxiety and worrying about things you cannot control, throw them onto God. Let God take care of you.

Jesus loved you enough to die for you. He highly values you. He will not allow anything to happen to you that is not for your best in the end. Trust Him in everything.

As you trust God and cast all your anxiety on Him and He will care for you. In the end you will have eternal life in a perfect heaven with God. Focus on that, rather on the troubles and anxieties of this life.

I pray today that you will know how much God cares for you; that you will trust God in every situation; that you will cast your fears and worries on God; and that you will allow God to remove all fear and worry in your life.
