SEPTEMBER 1: Oh How He Cares For You!
“Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” 1 Peter 5:7 The Amplified Bible
It is so easy for a Believer, if he or she is not watchful, to get caught up in the cares and the anxieties of life; wondering how am I going to make it, or how is this going to turn out, and on and on and on. We must remember that our Mighty God has said that he not only cares about us, but He affectionately cares about us and is also watching over our lives, looking for opportunities to help. The key for us is to cast all the anxieties and worries over on Him; that is what He asks us to do. Sure we have responsibilities and things that we must do, but the anxiety and worry that may attempt to accompany them, God says, “Cast that on Me, I’ll care FOR you.” Let’s give the Father a chance to show Himself faithful to His word. Worrying and being anxious about things has never changed anything and it never will…so take the Father at His word.
