“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
That all human beings encounter burdens is universal.
But did you know that carrying burdens is optional? That’s right. That’s exactly what our Bible verse tells us.
The verb for “cast” is rather a strong one. It means to pick up everything that is bothering you, everything that is weighing you down, and fling them on God’s back. He will carry them. You see, he is delighted to do so. Why? Because he loves you. He cares for you.
How marvelous is that?
That all human beings encounter burdens is universal. But whether you carry the burden or not is optional.
Why in the world would you carry burdens? Toss them! Fling them! Give them to Jesus.
He cares for you!
