Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.- 1 Peter 5:7
For some of us, this is often easier said than done. Some of you are like me. You race over to the Shepherd with your problem. You frantically bleat out what the trouble is. He assures that He will take care of you and that you are safe (even if you don't feel safe), and after receiving that news, you pick up your problems once again and dash off running around in circles. Sigh... will we ever learn?
Tucked away in the corner of my mind is a box entitled "God's Loving Care". This box contains "photographs" of me and God. There I am, bleating about something or other and voila! There is God tenderly holding me in His arms. Why in the world am I bleating pathetically? I am in the safest place one can possibly be in. I am safe in the hands of the Good Shepherd who cares for me and nothing can ever snatch me out of His hands.
Psalm 46 says:
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling.
Psalm 46:1-3 (NKJV)
Regardless of what we face, we can confidently cast all our cares upon God for He cares for us.
