We live in a world where a lot is being expected of us. We all face pressure and stress at some level. Whatever it is that stresses us or puts pressure on us is real to us and effects us. For someone to come and say, "Don't worry about it, it's nothing", doesn't help us at all. The pressure builds up, the anxiety is high and we feel like we cannot cope with our situation or what is potentially coming up.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7. We have a God who loves us deeply and as Sharnika at her baptism last week, is ALWAYS there for us. There is no hidden message in this verse; give Him all our worries and concerns because He cares for us.
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:27. We know we cannot, yet we continue to do it. Let us not fight a spiritual battle with our physical bodies and cast it all on Him.
