CAST YOUR CARES ON CHRISTStella Dhinakaran

Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.    (Psalm 55:22)

The Dhinakarans Dearly beloved ,

Apostle John, in his letter to Gaius, says, “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well” (III John 2). God doesn’t want His children to live in lack and tears every day. The heart and purpose of the Lord, our dear Father, is that we should prosper in all things.

How to receive this special blessing?

Firstly, pour out all your burdens in the presence of the Lord. This is what Hannah, the mother of Prophet Samuel, did (I Samuel 1:15). She did not have the gift of a child and hence she was very sad. Each year, she accompanied her husband to the house of God at Shiloh to worship the Lord Almighty. On one occasion, when they visited the house of God, she was so sad that she broke into tears. She poured out her soul to the Lord. The Lord who saw her tears had compassion on her. Soon, He blessed her with the gift of a child.

The same thing is stated in Psalm 142:2, 62:8 and Lamentations 2:19. Never accumulate any worry or burden in your heart, but pour them out in the presence of the Lord every day like a little child. In Luke 7:36-50, we read about a sinful woman who came to the Lord Jesus seeking His forgiveness and peace. She humbled herself before Him and began to wet His feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair and poured perfume on them. The Lord had mercy on her and granted her His forgiveness and peace. Accordingly, He will, first of all, grant divine peace in your life. Secondly, understanding your pain, He will pour His love on you in order to redeem you.

Next, examine yourself before the Lord. Humbly analyze yourself whether your life is pleasing to God. When you cleanse yourself and guard yourself holy, He will show mercy to you.

The Bible says, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall” (Psalm 55:22). As mentioned in this verse, cast your every burden upon Christ. He will never allow your foot to stumble but uphold you with His loving hand. He will shower His grace and blessings upon you.

Prayer:

Loving Lord Jesus,

It is Your will that I should prosper in all things. I pour out all my burdens in Your presence. I choose to live a holy life pleasing to You. Please shower Your love upon me and turn my sorrow into joy. Let Your grace and blessings abound in my life.

In Your matchless name I pray,

Amen.
