KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 37:8 (Amplified) “Commit your way to the Lord-roll and repose (each care of) your load on Him; trust (lean on, rely on and be confident) also in Him, and He would bring it to pass”.
Why should we cast our cares unto the Lord? The Lord does not want His children to worry or to be full of anxiety and burdened down with the cares of life. (Matt 6:25-27). All that the Lord is saying from the above scripture is that, which of you by worrying and being overly anxious is going to change anything?
The same thought is revealed in Luke 12:22 “And he said unto his disciples, therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on”.
You must cast all your cares unto the Lord. You do this once. Any other time another issue of concern show up, just give it over to the Lord. What do you do when your thoughts seem not to stop worrying? Say to yourself,’ I have given this matter to the Lord and He is well able to handle it’. I would no longer worry. Please say this to yourself as often as, your mind seems to go for the burden.
Worry is a sin. The bible says anything which is not of faith is sin (Romans 14:23). Worry is not of faith. It is a sin according to the bible.
Worrying would rob you of your answers and your prayer life would be certainly fruitless. The prayer of commitment is one that we have to do always, so long as matters rise up in our lives bringing concerns to our minds. This is our only way to lead a life of peace.
I always commit every care, concern or worry unto the Lord, and leave it with HIM. My life is filled with peace and power. God keeps answering my requests because I always trust in Him.
Luke 12:25-26 “And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?”
Proverbs 3:5-6 ” Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”.
