Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Read 1 Peter 5:7, NLT

This just doesn’t seem right to many of us.  How can we behave as adults and not worry about things?  Don’t we have to expend a little fretting and stressing f we really want something to happen?  Apparently not.  His Word is clear — give your concerns to Him and fear not.  In fact to behave in such a manner is insulting to God.  He views worry, fear and anxiety as a vote of “no confidence” in His Son and His Word.  Either you believe He cares for you and is willing and able to handle all that concerns you or you don’t.  Which is it?  The right choice is clear.  And as soon as you give God all your cares, concerns, and anxieties you’ll be amazed at the energy and creativity you have for other things.
• I have no cares. I have a good and faithful shepherd to watch over me.

• God will perfect and handle everything that concerns me.

• I rise up and lie down in peace and without the burden of care.
