I Place All My Cares on Jesus
1 Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Worries, Cares, and Concerns
We all have worries, cares, and concerns. Sometimes life is hard. Every day, you have a choice. You can walk around worried and anxious, or you can give your cares to the Lord.
God loves you so much that He invites you to place all your cares and concerns on Him.
In Matthew 11:28, Jesus stood before the people and said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He invited those who were tired of carrying their own burdens to come and throw them on Him.
How do you place all your cares on Christ? The secret is found in humbling yourself. God loves the humble and stands against the proud. The verse just before this promise tells us that if we humble ourselves, God can exalt us.
The humble person turns everything over to the Lord. The word “cast” here means to throw onto something or someone. It’s the picture of the person taking all their worries, cares, burdens, and fears and throwing them onto the shoulders of Jesus.
The proud person carries their own problems and fears. They think they can handle things by themselves. They only come to God when they feel completely overwhelmed. The humble bring everything to the Lord as a confession of their trust in Him.
He Cares for You
You can confidently throw your cares on Christ because He cares for you. You matter to Him. He is ready and willing to take on your anxious concerns.
When you place your cares on Christ, you find new courage to face your day. You receive wisdom and guidance on how to deal with the problem. God gives you new strength and faith to face your fears with complete dependence on God.
How many cares, worries, and burdens are you carrying today? Why not cast them on Christ? Let Jesus carry them. He cares for you.
Look at that promise again.
Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7
Make these confessions.
- Today I throw all my cares on Christ.
- I humble myself and place my trust in Him.
- I put my fears, worries, and concerns on Christ.
- I know He will carry my burdens because He loves me.
In Jesus Name,
When you cast all your anxieties on the Lord, you will find new strength, confidence, and faith as you trust the Lord’s goodness to bring you through.
