Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

1 PETER 5:7

I have noticed in recent years that many of the Lord’s people—not just ministers and missionaries—tend more and more to become a nervous and harried people.

I don’t claim to know everything about it. I only claim that there is hope and relief for the children of God in these terrible days, for Paul wrote to the Philippians and said, “Be anxious for nothing—the peace of God can keep your hearts and minds!”

How are we going to escape fear, when there are legitimate dangers that lie all around us?

Here’s what the man of God says: “Don’t be anxious but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God and the peace of God which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

So, Someone who is able is looking after us!

The Bible says, “He careth for you.” Jesus our Lord, says, “Your Father knows what you have need of before you ask Him.” And Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled.” And in all your afflictions, He was afflicted, the Word says.

Remember that peace of heart does not come from denying that there is trouble, but comes from rolling your trouble on God. By faith you have the right to call on One who is your brother, the Son of Man, who is also the Son of God. And if He is going to look after you, why should you worry at all![1]
