“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
I Peter 5:7 (NIV)
So often you hear the admonitions, “Don’t fear.”, “Stop worrying.” or “Quit being afraid.” These are helpful and can often stop us from pursuing a downward spiral of despair. But Peter had a better way. Instead of clipping back the weeds of fear and worry, Peter is recommending that we pull fear out by the roots. He suggests that we pull all our anxiety out by the roots and bring them to Jesus. Not a few or some, all! And why can we do that? Because Jesus cares for us! And how He cares for you! It is like the old hymn says, “Is there a heart o’er bound by sorrow? Is there a life weighed down by care? Come to the cross each burden bearing. All our anxiety leave it there. All your anxiety, all your care, bring to the mercy seat leave it there; never a burden He cannot bear, never a friend like Jesus.” Today, turn to Jesus. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
Father, You know all about my worry and fear. I come to You now and cast all my anxiety at Your feet. Instead of taking it back, help me take Your love with me instead.
