Sharing Hope: God said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the World.” John 16:33

As hard as we try, we can’t control everything. Circumstances happen, situations arise, consequences catch up with us. Anxiety or peace? Because of God we do have a choice. God makes all the difference in the world! Peter tells us to cast all our care on God. I love the imagery. You throw something light. You cast something heavy. We are to take our heavy load of worry and anxiety, use all our strength and faith and cast it onto Jesus. Let Him take it. Why? Because He cares for us. Why? Because He is able to keep us in perfect peace. Isaiah shared the secret to peace. He said to fix our thoughts on God and trust Him. What is it that you are worried about today? Cast it onto Jesus. Trust Him with it. Fix your thoughts on His love for you.
Father, I thank you that I can cast all my cares on You. I thank you that you care for me and that you are able to keep me in perfect peace. Take my situation, I trust you with it. I choose to take my focus off my worries and fears and put it on you and your love. Give me your peace today. AMEN
