Ever had one of those days? One of those weeks or even months? I did, only it seemed every day was one of those days.
I was journalling to Father about it recently and my eyes fell on a quote on a little plaque that I received from Joyce Meyer, years ago.
Good morning, this is God!
I will be handling all your problems today.
I will not need your help –
So, have a good day.
I love you!
I must admit I was a little taken aback by the extent of what that meant, even though I had read it for years. What, You mean I can just let it all go and let You look after it? Can I really do that? I asked Him for a verse, please, just in case Joyce got it wrong. He gave me two:-
…… casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. I Peter 5:7 AMP
Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail). Psalm 55:22 AMP
Casting can also mean ‘to drop’. Hmmm, so I can just drop it at Your feet, and then just walk away? Sounds almost too good to be true, but I did it anyway. And you know what? I started feeling more peaceful, knowing that He’s got it.
