Cast Your Cares

As God’s children, we are His dependents. The Bible says, “Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him.” Dependent children spend little time worrying about meals, clothing, and shelter. They assume, and they have a right to, that all will be provided by their parents. Because God is responsible for our welfare, we are told to cast all our care upon Him, for He careth for us.

Because we are dependent upon God, Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled.” God says, “I’ll take care of the burden—don’t give it a thought—leave it to me.” Dependent children are not backward about asking for favors. They would not be normal if they did not boldly make their needs known. God is keenly aware that we are dependent upon Him for life’s necessities. It was for that reason that He said, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”

Prayer for the day

How magnificent, almighty Father, that I, dependently, can rely on You to take the burden of my heart!

    I really struggle to understand this. I’m disabled and going through the SSI process which takes a long time. My daughter is paying the bills which I feel really guilty about. There are some material things that I need, but mostly I need to learn how to completely trust God. I’m depressed and it’s hard to see any kind of a future. The good times of my life, as well as most of my family, are gone. Dear God, please teach me how to trust in You completely. Letting go of fear and hearing You speaking to me is not something I do well. I want a more positive life, living according to Your plan. Please help me turn my life around. I ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
