Casting My Cares Upon the Lord
Those who leave everything in God's hand, will eventually see God's hand in everything.
More great words of advice!
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Notice this story...
A small tradesman had a case coming on in the county courtroom, on which, for him, every thing depended. A decision given against him meant ruin. Worrying over it day and night, he had become thin, looked haggard, lost his appetite and his sleep.
One day there came into his shop a friend of his boyhood, whom he had not seen for years. This friend was much distressed at his appearance, and said, "Why, whatever is the matter with you? I am sure you must have some grave anxiety weighing on your mind." The tradesman poured out to his friend all the story of his troubles; and then that friend said, "Don't you trouble any more about it. I am a lawyer, and practice at the courts, and I have had just such cases as yours. I see where the point of difficulty in your case is, and I have no doubt we shall be able to get you through all right. You trust the matter entirely to me. I will appear for you, and all will be well."
What a relief that tradesman felt! He had lost his burden, for he had cast it on his friend.
Sometimes we feel like King Hezekiah when he said,
Isaiah 38:14 Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.
But God said to the Apostle Paul,
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Heavenly Father, Thank you for a peace of mind and a settled heart. Thank you for caring for the things I care about, and assuring me of your presence in my life. In Jesus name Amen.
