“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you…” (1 Pet. 5:7).
Being in a position wherein you are involved in major decision-making which could impact many things and people can weigh heavily upon you. Sometimes the situation troubles you so much that even though you lie down to sleep, you are still restless. You pray. You know and believe that God has heard your prayer for wisdom in how to best approach the situation; however, you are still not at peace within.
The Apostle Peter instructs us to “cast all our care upon the Lord” knowing that when we surrender these burdens, God will take them upon Himself and provide us with the peace and relief that we need. In the beginning, we were not created to deal with stress. This is a byproduct of the Fall. However, God has made provision by making Himself available to carry the load for us, thus, giving us the ability through His grace to continue on our life’s journey.
God will be faithful to lead us in making the right decisions. When He steps in and we allow Him to take control of the situation, He will not add any sorrow with the outcome…just trust Him with the process.
