The many problems and demands of this life, which the Bible calls "the cares of this world," can easily overwhelm us if we let them. We feel we must do this or that; we must plan for this or that; we must somehow deal with this or that etc., etc., etc.
The Bible recognizes this situation, and the difficulties it can cause.
Mark 4:19 (KJV) "And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful."So what should we do when the cares of our world seem to close in on us, causing distress and confusion?
WE SHOULD CAST OUR CARES ON JESUS! Jesus is our Lord and our Saviour. We have given ourselves to Him, so we now belong to Him. He has been given all power in Heaven and Earth, so we should let Him take care of these things for us. We should let Him figure things out and tell us what to do. Our job is to do whatever He clearly tells us to do. His job is to arrange the big plans. We are overstepping our boundaries when we feel we have to figure everything out for ourselves.
Here are some Scriptures I have found on this subject.
Matthew 11:29-31 (KJV) "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." John 14:27 (KJV) "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Romans 14:17 (KJV) "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (KJV) "Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all." Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV) "Be careful (filled with care, anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." 1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV) "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
O Lord, when I feel troubled and distressed, By all the cares and problems in this world, I pray that You will calm my anxious mind, And give to me Your peace within my heart. I pray You now do take my cares away, As I your servant cast them onto You. In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.NOTE: If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, you can do so now by clicking => HERE! or HERE!
