|SCRIPTURE: “Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” (Psalm 55:22 NIV)|
David, brings his concerns and fears to God, asking Him to take care of the problems he’s facing. He knows he can trust God with the outcome. God has proven Himself before and will do so again. (Psalm 55:16-17).
Much of the time, what we care about is not entirely within our control. We can’t dictate the results of our best efforts; we can’t force our hopes to materialize, and we definitely can’t make someone we love healthy and happy by the sheer force of our will. When we try to control outcomes, we carry a burden too heavy for human shoulders to bear. What a relief it is to finally let go, to heave our heavy burden onto the strong back of the Lord. He promises to sustain our hearts and minds with His peace (Philippians 4:6-7). And no matter what He chooses to do with what concerns us, we have the assurance that His decisions are guided by His love for us (1 Peter 5:7).
