God 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, Amplified).


Perhaps the heaviest weight we try to carry is the weight of our past failures and mistakes.  But we are encouraged in scripture to take the weight of our cares and cast it on Jesus. 


Carrying our worries, stresses and daily struggles only show that we have not learned to trust Him fully with our lives. Even if we have fallen and failed and everyone has turned against us, our Heavenly Father will never turn against us because His love never fails.


It does not matter what we think we may have done or how horrible the mistake we believe we have made. When we turn to God in repentance He is there to bear the weight of our struggle.   Lets release our weights and give it to the Lord who cares.
