Cast Your Anxieties On HIM

Wendy Corr

When I opened my Bible this morning to the page I was on yesterday, I looked across to the other page and the first words I saw were, "be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith." This was from 1 Peter 5:8. And then I looked just above these words, and I found 1 Peter 5:7 – "cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

I believe these two verses go hand-in-hand for a reason – we are surrounded by temptation, by negativity, by sadness and evil. If we fall prey to those feelings, then the devil wins! But if we exercise self-control in every aspect of our lives, from the food we eat to the people we associate with, then we live as God's people, as an example to others about the peace and health that comes when we live as God intended! More than that, we have nothing to worry about – we cast all of our anxiety on God, because he can handle it, and he loves us! He loves us so much that not only did he create us, but he protects us, he teaches us, and he sent his son, whom he loved and who was perfect, to suffer and die in our place. We are free. We don't half to pay again for the sins that Christ already paid for.
