Cast Your Cares

I was just thinking about how we are constantly carrying our burdens. Dealing with the cares of life, parenting, marriage, finances, family issues, sickness and more. In this world we will have trials and tribulations but we must be of good cheer because we have overcome the world.

But if you think about it, we really are walking in disobedience. I know it's easier said than done, but we are not supposed to be carrying our burdens. In 1st Peter 5:7 God told us to cast our cares upon Him because He cares for us. We were never designed to take on the load and responsibility of all of these cares. The weight is much too heavy!!!!!  God is saying “look I can bear this, you can’t!!! “ Come, I need for you to cast every care, concern, anxiety, worry, disappointment, fear, everything that’s pulling you down. I need for you to send it my way. When you cast something you throw it off your shoulders and back. You release the weight of it. 

God wants us to come to Him and exchange yokes. Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

We are constantly laboring by worrying, trying to be Miss Fix it, freating, and trying to figure it all out. Not knowing how it's gonna all work out is hard, but that is where the total trust, dependency and humility comes in. 

Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.This is the key to walking in  freedom and victory daily. This is the key to casting and not carrying!!!!  Taking everything to God in prayer, putting it at the feet of Jesus. As a result our hearts and minds are guarded and protected by His peace, regardless of the outcome.

Let’s take it all to the burden bearer. He promised to sustain us. He said He would not let us go under. He promised to keep us. Psalms 55:22  When the load of cares start coming your way immediately begin to put the cast verses carry in motion. This is how we walk in constant victory.
