He cares for you

Rawlin Falk contributes a weekly religious column on his thoughts

all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (NAS95)

Isn’t this a wonderful invitation? “Come to me with your trouble. You don’t have to worry about it any more! I’ll look after everything for you if you’ll let Me.”

Anxieties, or cares, always draw us away from God. Jesus told us that the cares of this life choke the word of God and make it unfruitful in our lives. He has called us to a life of faith and implicit trust in Him. Worry is the opposite of this. Jesus has thought of all the contingencies of life and has the answers for even the simplest trouble.

The invitation is to cast. It’s our part to give them to Him. This part involves simply talking with Him and agreeing that He should take the anxiety away. Tell Him how you feel! Tell Him exactly what it is that’s bothering you about the situation and then ask Him to intervene in a way that only He can. The issue may still be there and we may still have to do our part, but we walk with confidence that the outcome is in His capable hands.

He cares for you! This is the wonderful part of the invitation. God actually cares about you and the issue that’s troubling you. That’s why you needn’t worry about it. As you submit your cares to Him and trust Him, He will work on your behalf to cause all things to work together for good. Romans 8:28

Do you have worries and cares? Take a moment to discuss them with the Lord. He’s invited you to do so.
