Cast your cares upon Him; He can handle it

By Elizabeth Prata

We’re all going through something. We all have burdens, griefs, and issues to deal with. If not at this moment, we might be coming out of one or going into one. The Lord said that in this life we would have trouble. (Jon 16:33).

He cares for us and will be with us every step of the way. He said to cast our cares to Him.

Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22)

Believe it!

Still not sure?

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you (1 Peter 5:6-7).


Think of it this way. There are 8 billion people alive on earth today. Of those, how many Christians are there in the world at any given moment? Millions? Hundreds of millions? Since Jesus calls us to cast our cares upon Him, and there are hundreds of millions of Christians doing just that each day, it’s a gigantic pile of cares. He handles it. In the face of all that, he can handle your checkbook. Your mother’s cancer. Your daughter’s shoplifting. Your husband’s grumpiness. Your job search. He can handle it, and He does.

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will do it. (Psalm 37:5)
