June 8th – 1 Peter 5:7

1 Peter 5:7 

We all need a friend to share our troubles with. Someone to listen to our fears, cares, and worries. And while earthly friends may not understand, tire of hearing our complaints, or have troubles of their own, Jesus never will. In fact He implores us to, “cast all your anxiety on Him.” The word “cast” comes from the Greek verb “rhipto” which means to throw off or to lay down. It’s the act of deliberately laying something down and leaving it there. The Lord encourages us to hand the worries of our hearts over to Him. To lay them at His feet, never again picking them back up. Because there isn’t a difficulty or hardship He can’t handle. Not a problem He can’t solve. God knows us better than we know ourselves, and what’s best for us. So go to Him and bare your heart. For He loves you more than life itself. And is the best Friend you could ever have!
