HE CARES FOR YOU
I Peter 5:7 NKJV "Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."
God cares! That's noteworthy. Have you been in situations when it seems
that no one cares? You run from pillar to post seeking help but no one
is willing to help, you have issues bothering you but there's no one who
you can share with; you feel all alone in this world: but God cares!
He's more than a lover, a friend, a parent and a brother; He's your
Cares refer to worries and anxiety. Chances are that you
have things on your mind, things that make you cry at night, things you
probably can't share with others, things that have stolen your peace of
mind. Today God is asking you to throw all your worries and anxiety on
Philippians 4:6 says, "Be anxious for nothing, but in
everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your
requests be made known to God." It's not that God is ignorant of your
issues and your pain, He simply wants you to talk to Him about them and
to trust in His everlasting love for you. He cares for you. And when you
do cast them upon Him, don't take them from Him afterwards. If you
could do something about your issues I'm sure you'd have done so by now.
So forget about them, be happy, and just keep thanking Him in faith.
