《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1Pe 5:7)
Meditation one: Are you overwhelmingly stressful because of worrying about and bothering by a lot of things? Those things may resulted from your job, ministry, school, family, finance, interpersonal relationship, or illness, remember, you and I have the privilege of being children of God so we can cast all our anxiety on Him because He cares for us. He has promised: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Mat 11:28)
Meditation two: Why is anxiety also a sin? It is because anxiety makes us disavow the omniscient, almighty, and everlasting God. It also makes us uncertain about His words, faithfulness, guidance, provision, and protection. Anxiety often distracts us and drives us away from God. We must turn to God in time to ask God to forgive our little faith. He will renew our strength.
Prayer: God, thank You for Your love and everlasting promises. Please make me known that, after casting my anxiety on You, I should not just sit back and relax, but I also have to “be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1Pe 5:8) Lord, I want to put my trust in You all the time. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
