“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7 NIV
Do you know what to do with worry?
Here, God says to cast it all on Him.
What does that mean?
Cast means to toss. You can’t throw something without letting it go.
All means to give Jesus every irrational fear, every overwhelming worry, as they come to you.
Your anxiety means not to deny it but to name it. What is the fear underneath the worry? Name it, acknowledge it, feel it – then cast it to God.
Anxiety – the greek word used here literally means to be drawn in two different directions and be torn apart by it.
On Him – where do you put that which is tearing you apart? Put it into the hands of Jesus. He is strong enough to handle it.
Because He Cares – and it means Jesus is “caring right now in this present moment”, whatever you are dealing with
For You – yes, YOU.
What are you suppossed to do with worry?
Look at it, name it then cast it totally on God and ask Him take care of you as you deal with it.
