“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you” [Psalm 55:22(NIV)]
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you”. Jesus spoke of each day having enough trouble of its own. ‘Cares’ speak of everyday life. Each day has its own cares and concerns, there’s no avoiding that. It’s what we do with them that matters. Carrying them, being weighed down by them, allowing them to choke the very life out of you is one option. The other is to hand them over. The Hebrew word for ‘cast’ emphasises the transfer from one place to another.
David is encouraging us to hand our lives, and the daily issues in them, over to the Lord. When we do, then we experience His sustaining power, enabling us to come through each day in a way that honours Him and strengthens our relationship with Him.
