The psalmist wrote, “Be still, and know that I am God” (46:10). Paul exhorted the Philippians to “be anxious for nothing” (Phil 4:6). And Peter instructed his readers to cast all their cares on God (1 Peter 5:7).
I confess that for too long I have tried to work out my own problems and carry my own cares in my own self-strength, but I thank You Father-God that You care so much for me that I can cast all the burdens and hurts and disappointments and worries that seem to be flooding my life today, upon You – in the sure knowledge that you have promised to carry them. I admit I am weak, but I praise You that I can draw on Your amazing strength today and in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
