Cast your cares on the LORD
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22
When we are facing difficulties that are too much for us to handle, God invites us to put the weight of our concerns on him. He will carry them and walk alongside us through every situation. The Holy Spirit has continued to offer this invitation to God’s people throughout history. Jesus gave this invitation in Matthew 11:28-30. His disciple, Peter, told Christ’s followers to humble themselves toward God and “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). And Paul challenged us to bring all our anxieties to God in prayer, promising God’s peace will guard our hearts and minds against anxiety and discouragement. And that is your challenge for today: bring whatever your burden is to God today because he cares for you and will sustain you.
