22 Mar YOU ARE NEVER ALONE
Casting all your care upon him; for He cares for you.. [1 Peter 5:7]
It does not matter how tightly knit your family is or how many close friends you have. When we go through a difficult time or trial, many a time, we still feel all alone and that no one really cares or understands. Just like Martha and the Disciples, Maybe the cry of your heart is, “Lord, do You not care that I am left all alone…that I am going under…that I am perishing?”
Jesus cares for you. He loves you so much that He wants you to cast all your cares upon Him; not just some but all your cares. He wants both your big and small cares. There is nothing too small or big for Him. If it is a care in your heart, He wants you to cast it upon Him.
When the apostle Peter wrote “casting all your care upon Him”, he was talking about the continuous act of casting all your cares upon the Lord. As a care comes, God wants you to cast it to Him. That is the lifestyle He wants you to adopt. Why? The verse gives us the reason—“for He cares for you”. You are casting all your cares upon the One who loves you, and who left all of heaven to come and die for you. That is who you are casting your cares to. It is not just any person, but it is the One who gave His life for you!
When you are going through a difficult time, God wants you to believe that you are never alone because He Himself has said that He will never leave you nor forsake you. As the object of His care, He will take care of you for the rest of your life. You are never alone!
1 Today I reject every negative foundation that controls my destiny,I stand firm on the foundation of Jesus the author and finisher of my faith.
2 I dissociate myself by fire from every wrong foundation that retards my progress in Jesus name.
3 Every ancestral foundation that has control over me ,be pull down by fire.
Liberation thought: …He will never leave you nor forsake you.
