Cast anxiety

Cast anxiety on God for he cares for you.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 NIVUK

Greetings in the loving name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

The world around us is not so rosy and happy. Everyone seems to struggle in one way or the other. While some might be outwardly very happy, while struggling hard inside to keep up with the world. As a result, people are seeking those things which temporarily alleviate their issues. Rather than seeking the almighty God who is eager to lift them up from their problems; everyone is looking at other people or things for help.

As apostle Peter writes in the 1 Peter 5:7, cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Yes, our God is the living God. With His outstretched arms He is calling us to draw near to Him. Also it is we who are blinded and deaf to hear Him. Let us open the doors of our heart to Him so that He indwells in us. As the Bible says in Philippians 4:6:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Nodoubt, most of us do not seek God at the very moment the problem arises. We only look at God when all other options are expired. Whether we are eager or not in seeking God, He is very eager to help us. That is why He asks us to cast all our anxiety upon Him, for He is the all powerful God who is able to lift us up from any kind of situations.

So brethren, give your heart and fully surrender to Him so that He establishes His good plans in our lives. In Jesus matchless name. Amen.
