DAY 19 SATURDAY: SEPTEMBER 2020

GOD CARES FOR YOU RICHLY ABOVE ALL!

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).

Many a time, we allow ourselves to be so burdened with cares and lot of worries in life. We think of the known and the unknown, worry unnecessarily and become over anxious of life’s challenges. A Christian should take note of the fact that no amount of worries will solve his problems, but rather it will even aggravate his problems in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God cares for him richly above all things in life. Life itself has its own solution in God who is the absolute Creator of life forever.

One of the reasons why God called King David a man after His own Heart was because he always learnt to cast His cares upon Him in life. This was the secret of King David’s success in life. That is why he said in Psalm 23:4 thus, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to cast his cares and worries on the Lord, God comforts him diligently with His rod and staff in life. This is the reason why he never lost any battle of life’s challenges. It is absolutely only God that can give victory to life’s challenges and situations forever.

God has told us in His Word to cast all our cares not some, not many upon Him because He cares for us in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Philippians 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” In fact, a Christian who learns to always cast his cares and worries upon the Lord can never be anxious in life and ministry. God does not expect you to cast your cares and worries of life upon yourself because it could lead to your untimely death in life. A life that is devoid of God is indeed a life that is full of cares and worries forever.

Daily Tip: It is suicidal for a Christian to cast his cares and worries of life upon himself; therefore, he should be warned forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).
