…casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].1 Peter 5:7
There is nothing going on in your life that God didn’t already know about, there are absolutely no surprises. When you talk to God about your circumstances it’s not the first time that He’s learned about your concerns and issues. It’s easy when our time is idle that our thoughts go to problems that we are having. We think that there must be something that we should be doing, that there’s something we could do.
Far too often we try to think ourselves out of the issue when the truth is, Jesus is the remedy. We look over everything with our human eyes and natural understanding. We want to see everything “fixed” right now. Jesus understands this, however, there is much going on in the spiritual realm and there is also much that we need to learn.
This experience is not for nothing. We may not see or realize how God is working to mold and shape us into who He needs us to be, but one day… soon… we’ll be able to look back and understand a little of the “why.” We’ll be able to see how much that we have grown and how our faith and understanding is needed for what God is calling us to do. We’ll see all of the glimpses of Him that was there all along when we were too preoccupied to notice.
We need to listen carefully to the Word that God has given us. We need to keep it and hold tight to it… and know that He who is able is with us.
