1 Peter 5:7 casting all you care upon Him, for He cares for you.

A good husband, who sees his wife carrying a load of groceries, will offer to take the load from her. Why? Because he doesn’t want to see his beautiful bride struggling with anything he can easily handle himself. The husband’s love for his wife compels him to assist her.

God’s the same way, but better. When He sees us struggling to carry the cares of the world on our shoulders, His love compels Him to offer us a helping hand. From our children’s well-being to our finances, God is capable and willing to carry and perfect our cares (Psalm 138:8).

God’s a gentleman. If we try to retrieve our cares back from God’s hands He’ll let us, but that’s not His divine will for our lives.

Let’s stop being fearful, prideful, and stubborn and trust God to carry our cares.
