As a believer, I have come to the conclusion that we (believers) often times sweep over our own personal issues, thinking and even telling ourselves ” Everything will be alright because I believe in God, he has me, so let me focus on the pain around me vs. the pain in me”.
Yes, God does have you and it’s always good, with the leading of the Holy Spirit to love on the hurting people around you but to ignore your own reality and pain is simply allowing a foothold for the enemy to come in. To be whole does not mean we leave a hole.
We have to learn to cast our cares, acknowledge them, release them and walk out the casting. “To cast” is an action. In fact, it is not a one time action but one we will do time after time after time.
1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV)
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Call to action:
What is God asking you to cast today? Will you allow him to care for you? What does “to Cast” looks like in action?
Say the prayer below.
“Lord, I come to you as humbly as I absolutely know how. Thank you for promising to never leave or forsake me. Thank you for your grace & unconditional love that you give to me freely each day. I ask for forgiveness for falling short of your glory as we know we all have fallen short, rather it is unbelief or a lack of trust in who you say you are. I repent for wrong thinking, speaking and doing and submit myself today to your leading. Remove any resistance I may have to your will for my life. Reveal to me any holes I have left unattended so that I can begin to walk in love for these areas. Love is an action. Love Heals. Make known to me the holes I have sped past so that I can cast my cares and allow your perfect love in. Thank you, papa, for not only hearing this prayer but for fulfilling this prayer. Give me faith to believe that it is finished…in Jesus mighty name I pray.. amen”.
