Daily devotional for 27 July 2017 – 1 Peter 5:7
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV):
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
God is really speaking through this verse to my personally and I hope to you as well. This world is so full of anxiety, because the devil loves spreading it, that it easy to let yourself to be overcome by anxieties. Even in my life at the moment there are more than one thing that could cause anxiety with my or my family, but that is not what God wants for us. No, God makes it very clear that we need to cast all our anxieties on Him and therefore not keep hold of these anxieties ourselves.
I therefore pray today that God will strengthen us through the Holy Spirit to be able to cast all our anxieties onto Him and not keep hold of them. How big the situation might be, that we no longer see and use it as a reason to keep hold of anxiety. Because God doesn’t want us to have them!
