Scripture Of The Week – 1 Peter 5:7

1 Peter 5 verse 7

“Cast all your cares upon Him, because He cares about you.”

This is the scripture verse this ministry uses on it cards, we hand out. this along with If It Matters To You, It Matters to Him.

This is an assurance as well as a promise, if we are to read it in the message Bible.

1 Peter 5 verse 6 and 7

“So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs, God’s strong hand is on you; He’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; He is most careful with you.”

YES! it is an assurance and a promise.

CAST: This word means; ‘to throw. to remove something from one place to another.’ where is your concern right now? Where is your worry? When you cast it on Him {Our lord and Our Friend} you are removing it from your own heart and tossing it onto His.

The Greek word used here only occurs one other time in the new testament, in the story of the Triumphal Entry. Luke 19 verse 34.

CARES; The Greek word means ‘worries and anxieties’ This doesn’t mean we should not have healthy concerns, but this is telling about unhealthy, crippling anxieties that can tear us apart. They place enormous weight on us that will destroy us.

Because He cares about you. YES!  He {Our Lord and Our Friend} does really care about you , me [us].

Are you weighed down, well ‘cast’ and ‘believe’. Faith is an action, use your faith to cast and not doubt.

The Lord is waiting to receive the things that weigh us all down, for He cares about US.

God Bless.
