“Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” (I Peter 5:7 AMP).
When we were children we weren’t up every nights worrying about the mortgage payment, or stressing over how we were going to put food on the table, or cloths on our backs. For most of us we lived totally carefree lives, because we placed our total trust and reliance in our parents, who we knew lovingly cared for us.
If we could, as children, cast the whole of our care onto our natural parents, how much more should we today, as children of God, cast the whole of our care onto our heavenly Father? Let’s choose to live carefree lives.
