1 Peter 5:7– “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
One thing that we all desire is for someone to take care of us. Many times with that desire, we give that responsibility to the wrong person, place or thing. We can sometimes put unrealistic standards of a person to love us or care for us in a way that they can’t do. Many of us feel as though our job will care for us in a financial aspect, only to realise that you can lose that job or not get that promotion you are looking for. We may look to medicine, drugs or alcohol to take care of that emptiness that we feel only to see that after the high…the lack of care is still there. This can cause disappointment, resentment and bitterness for us and/or those around us. This is why 1 Peter 5:7 is so important.
This verse lets us know that God is allowing us to give him ALL of our cares. Whether they are big or small, he is willing to take all of that burden from us. His reason behind doing it is simply because he cares for you. This week, let this verse remind you of why you can trust God today. You have a Father that tells you that he is willing to take care of you and all your needs. Spread The Soup!0
