1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Back in Peters time they were anxious and stressed too. Life was not easy for the new Christian believer. Jesus was hung and His followers or followers of the Way were picked on. Peter knowing the Devil seeks to kill, steal, and destroy our testimony for the Lord. He gives them the best advice, and backs it up with a promise from God. His advice is “cast all your anxiety on Him”

Against Him we throw our cares. (Reminds me of how our sins nailed Jesus to the cross.)
But then comes the promise “because He cares for you.”God wants to take our fears, He wants us to not just let go… He wants us to throw them, to take them away. He can save you from your fears or He will give you the strength to make it through. God can turn all the events in your favor so as to convince you of his eternal Fatherly love and mercy towards you. The best Christians are anxious, having many worries. The Scripture here says ” all your cares,” meaning that whether you are worried about personal cares, family cares,Your job, the future, your rent & bills, for others, and for the church. All of these are lumped onto God and He takes over the burden for us!!! Now that deserves a big WOOT, WOOT, #GOTEAMJESUS.
i Pray you got something out of this Scripture as I did . Boy I am gonna relax in the Lord because this cold has got me beat up. I cast it onto Him and ask for speedy healing. Yup one of those microwave Christians who want everything fast. LOL O:) Wait on the Lord be of good courage and He will direct your paths. Ps. 27:!4
