Cast Your Cares - January 11, 2023

“Cast your cares upon the Lord and he will sustain you” (Psalm 55:22). Casting is an intentional act to relocate an object. Let this “throwing” be your first response to bad news. Cast your anxiety in the direction of Christ. Do so specifically and immediately.

I did a good job of casting my problems in a high school algebra class. Fortunately my wonderful, patient teacher issued this invitation: “If you cannot solve a problem, come to me and I will help you.” I wore a trail between his desk and mine. I still had the problem, but I had entrusted it to one who knew how to solve it.

Do the same. Take your problem to Christ and tell him, “You said you would help me. Would you?”
