“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
In today’s busy and hectic schedule you may find yourself facing the pressure of being a single mother, the pressure of raising your children, or the pressure of trying to balance your finances. The fact remains that despite all our convenient amenities, life is not any easier, and issues are not any simpler. We are all trying to find answers and relief from stress. Suicide and divorce are all too common in today’s churches, let alone in our society. But there are real answers for tough questions.
You can give your care over to God, and He will never fail you. He will destroy every yoke that will try to weigh you down. The counselor can bring temporary relief, but only God can permanently remove it. What so many people have a hard time doing is letting go of their pain and giving it to God. I know that is hard to believe, but it is true. Why is it like this? Does God have an answer? Can you find a way out?
Disappointment and setbacks are two of Satan’s most successful attacks against the believer. When promises are not kept, and dreams are shattered, people’s hearts are broken. Whether your heart was broken as the result of someone else’s sinful or treacherous behavior, or whether a self-inflicted blow broke it, it does not matter. Too many broken hearts create a broken world, no matter how the damage was done in the first place.
The answer is found in the dumping ground. You do not have to carry your pain. By holding on to it, you are telling God you can handle it. Decide today to turn your care upon Him.
“Pain can become a conduit for power.”
