1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your cares upon Him for He cares for you.”
My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Today’s word of God is taken from the book of 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your cares upon Him for He cares for you.”
Many of you might think that there is no one to care about you and you are left alone, but there is one who cares for you and He is our Lord Jesus Christ. As He cares for you, you can boldly cast all your cares upon Him. There is another word of God that says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” So today the Lord is enquiring about you very especially, about your children, about your health condition, about your income, about your weakness.
He is not a God who enquires about you and just goes away, but He is a God who will help you in every situation. In the Bible, we see how the Lord inquired about a lame man, who was lying at the Bethesda pool for 38 years. The Bethesda Pool is a place where many sick people are found to be waiting for an angel to come and stir the water. And while the water is being stirred, if anyone gets into the pool then he will be healed. But there was no one to help the lame man to get into the water. So, he remained there for 38 years. Jesus knew about this lame man and so he inquired if he wanted to be healed. The lame man said that he desired to be healed but there was no one to put him into the pool. On hearing the words of the lame man, Jesus said, “Take up your bed and walk.” Immediately the man got up from his bed and began to walk home. This shows that Jesus cares for everyone. The sufferings of that lame man who was lying down for 38 years got healed in a moment. Thus, Jesus came to enquire and healed him instantly. The sufferings of that man came to an end. God gave him deliverance and sent him home.
My dear children of God, it does not matter how many years, you have been afflicted. No matter how many years you are suffering from debts, or how many years you had been suffering from the disease. Today God is concerned about you, He will ask you “What shall I do for you my daughter, my son?What should I do for you that will make you joyous?What is the reason for your sorrow? Why are you shedding tears? What is the reason behind your crying? Lord will enquire about all the situations that make you sad and worried and He will perform a miracle for you in whatever problem you are going through.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for speaking to us through the verse “Casting all your cares upon Him for He cares for you. ” We thank you for performing miracles for your children and for solving their problems. Lord, you inquired about the lame man lying helplessly at Bethesda and made him walk. Some are still suffering for long years being trapped in some problems. Lord, send your word today and deliver them from their problems. May the worries that spread in their heart, be uprooted. Let a miracle happen in that particular area, which has caused them pain and sorrow. Give my children all that they need, and honor them Lord.
