Today’s Scripture: casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7 ESV)
What causes you anxiety today? Why are we anxious about what we are going to do? We were made by Him for Him. Today’s affirmation was found in 1 Peter 5:7. I will cast all of my anxieties upon God, because He cares for me.
Our anxieties, our worries, nor our plans provide but it is God. In verse 8 of 1 Peter we are told to stay sober and alert as the devil is out to devour us. The devil can use our anxieties, our hurts, habits and hang-ups to shake our faith and keep us bound. Peter instructs us in verse 9 that a strong faith will resist the devil. A strong faith in He who cares.
Isn’t it interesting that Peter did not say IF you have anxieties nor did he say IF you suffer in verse 10 but says AFTER we suffer there is the promise that God Himself will “perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.” (KJV) We just need to give them to God.
Today’s Prayer: Almighty God, thank you for caring for me. I cast all of my anxieties upon You. I am willing and eager to serve as You intend for me. Show me now your ways O God. I stand firm in Your grace and know that a strong faith in You will resist the evil one. You Father God are the power forever and ever.
