[marriagerestoration] Digest Number 1209
He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)
If you are going through a hard situation in your home, fret not yourself, give it all to the Lord. God is promising us in the verse above that if we will do our part by casting our cares upon Him, He will do His part by sustaining us.
Many times we're left struggling with burdens God never meant us to handle. The results are often anxiety, depression, despair, and even sickness and infirmity.
But maybe I can help convince you that God really does want to carry your burdens, and that it's worth the effort to surrender them to Him.
God wants you to give Him all your worries. Only God's shoulders are big enough to carry our daily concerns. Look at this promise in Psalm 68:19: "Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens." All these verses make it clear that God wants to bear ALL our cares ALL the time.
When we are able to take that step of faith and let go of all the anxiety that tries to plague us and weigh us down, we enable God to fulfill His promise of perfect peace and deliverance-no matter what we may be going through or facing. It's important to remember just how much God loves and wants to care for us. He's just waiting for us to take the first step and ask for him to take the heavy load of circumstance we are holding on to so tightly.
What is weighing you down today? Have you purposed in your heart to cast it upon our Heavenly Father? Or are you holding on to it with all your human strength? Why not experience that perfect peace of His Spirit that transcends all human reasoning and understanding and cast all of your cares, every single one, on the Lord today. He who promised is faithful!
No matter where you are or what you are struggling with, God has settled your soul to have peace with Him. The peace of God is a promise for you today. Claim it, speak it and live in it. Throw off the distractions of negative words and actions of your wayward spouse, negative comments of family members or friends, guilt, and self-condemnation. And let the peace of Christ dwells in you richly. Nothing can interfere with the love Christ has for you and the peace that is yours by knowing Him.
All these things on earth will pass away, but your security for eternity is fixed. Fix your eyes on Jesus by reading His word. Get a verse today that you can claim as a promise and live beyond the struggles. Cast your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you.
I want to thank those who have been assisting me in this quest for the healing of marriages. Without your prayers and financial support, there is no way I would be able to encourage and minister to many. I thank God daily for your obedience and faithfulness.
