I don’t care

Posted on Posted in Faith, Trust

                                                       … He does!

Why does the Bible encourage us to …
      casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
      1 Peter 5:7

Because what you care about is what occupies you,
… is what you are putting all your efforts into,
… is what holds your attention and steals your peace.
Holding you and your entire being captive!

But how is casting my cares on Him going to free me and benefit me?
Very simply …
      casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
      1 Peter 5:7

Letting go and letting GOD care for you,
means that you are then at the centre of HIS thoughts,
… of HIS attention and of HIS care!
That is exactly where God wants us to be,
… in that place where He can truly do what He promised,
where He can manifest His strength and supply in our lives.

      Need proof?
      Peter, the disciple who tried to do everything in his own strength,
      … was also the disciple that ended up denying Jesus.
      What was Jesus’ response afterwards to Peter,
      … and what did He say to Peter when Peter asked about John?

      Jesus said to him, ‘If I will that he remain till I come,
      what is that to you? You follow Me.
      John 21:22

In other words,
Jesus admonished Peter to STOP being concerned
… and distracted with what others do,
but to follow Him.

      Cast your cares upon Me
      so that I can be your source, your strength, your life!
