"Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you."
1 Peter 5: 7
This is the verse that I picked to memorize/meditate on for the first two weeks of February. Last Saturday I was thinking that I needed to pick out a new verse to have ready for the first day of February (Sunday) but never got around to doing it. Then on Sunday morning when our Pastor gave us the Scripture for his sermon, I knew I had found my verse!
The verses we pick on the 1st and the 15th of the month are supposed to be verses that mean something to us personally...a verse that we NEED. I need this verse. It seems like lately there are a whole lot of cares in my life. All this week I have quoted this verse to myself. I have said, "Casting ALL your care upon him; for he careth for you." I have said, "Casting all your care upon HIM; for he careth for you." I have said, "Casting all your care upon him; for HE careth for you." I have said, "Casting all your care upon him; for he CARETH for you." I have said, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for YOU." You get the picture! God wants us to give our cares and problems to Him! Why? Because He cares for us so very much!
I have asked the Lord this week to take my cares and to help me to not come and take them back! I feel so weak and helpless most of the time. I really do need God's care and His help. He is so able to meet every need we have. I just need to be able to trust Him more.
What about you? Do you have some cares that you need to cast upon Him? Then...do it! Because He cares for you!
