“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”- Simon Peter

     There was a man who constantly worried about everything in his life. He worried about his children, his job, his wife, his health, his church, his neighbors, and everything else.   One day a friend of this man noted that he was extremely calm and peaceful so he asked him, “You have always worried about every-thing. What happened?” The former worrier replied, “I just hired a man to do the worrying for me.” “Well, how much are you paying him?” His friend inquired. “A thousand dollars a week,” the man replied. “A thousand a week? You can’t afford a thousand dollars a week.” The worrier responded, “That’s his problem!”

Worry, doubt, and fear bombard our life on so many levels. As believers we are overwhelmed by so many things, but we must never forget that our problems belong to God. You may be reading this today and you too are worried about something, or perhaps like the fellow in this story you are worried about everything. May I remind you of the words of the apostle Peter, “Casting all your care upon Him for He careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

Why worry the day away when you can take it to the Lord in prayer? Remember, your problem is His problem!
