Psalm 55:22, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” (NIV)
What are you worried about these days? Given the fact that we’re currently living through a pandemic, I’m sure you have many worries. In this verse, King David writes to encourage us to “cast your cares on the Lord”. What does that mean? When you have a care, there is something you’re mulling over that is a concern or of interest to you, and very important. If you don’t have “control” over that care, you begin to worry as to what the outcome will be. As believers, if we could just give God our cares entirely, how much more at peace would we be? If you truly believed that the Creator of this world was working on your behalf and bringing all things together for your good (Romans 8:28), how much more productive could you be on your day to day by freeing up your mind to think of other things that are within your control. The rest of the verse says, “He will never let the righteous be shaken”. If you are living in accordance with the Word of God, He literally will not let anything move or disrupt you. I read this verse and was so thankful! God is faithful.
I want to remind you today, that God cares for you and He sustains you, which means He is protecting and keeping you. If he has gotten you this far, and answered your prayers in the past, why can’t you believe Him to do the same in the present? As you develop your relationship with God, and grow to delight in Him, He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4). He will literally fill you with the proper desires that you need. Please release whatever anxieties you currently have and give them to God. He will give you His peace while you wait on Him and fill you with His joy once He answers your prayer(s).
Dear Father, thank You for the promises in Your Word that bring me comfort. Help me to truly believe them with my whole heart. You are faithful and loving. Help me to remember that You are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, there is nothing that is impossible for You to do. I give You all my worries, knowing whatever the outcome, is Your best for me. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
