Each new week brings new opportunities to trust God. Today’s devotional will help you do that.
Carry all your concerns to Him–in the arms of faith!
(James Smith, “The Pastor’s Morning Visit”)
“Casting all your care upon Him–for He careth for you!” 1 Peter 5:7
The Lord knows all His people–all their needs, and all their trials.
He thinks upon them–to bless, deliver and supply them.
He keeps His eye upon them–in all places, at all times, and under all circumstances.
He has them in His hand–and will not loosen His hold.
He looks upon them always as His own ‘treasured possession’ . . .
the objects of His eternal love,
the purchase of His Son’s blood,
the temples of His Holy Spirit.
They are precious in His sight!
He knows they are weak and fearful–and that they have many enemies. He teaches them to cast themselves and all their cares into His hands! And He has given them His promise–that He will care for them.
It is a Father’s care which He exercises. It is a wise, holy, tender, and constant care. Therefore all will be well with you–only trust Him.
Believe that He cares for you this day. Carry all your concerns to Him–in the arms of faith! Leave all with Him, persuaded that He will manage all by His infinite wisdom, and bring all to a good outcome by His omnipotent power.
Do not worry about anything. Cast all your cares upon Him–as fast as they come in.
“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55:22
