A few thoughts today on what it means to cast all our cares on the Lord …
What are we giving to the Lord when we give him our burdens?
Our worry and anxiety about the situation
Our obsessive desire to think about the situation
Our need to control the situation
Our helplessness because we can’t control the situation
What are we not giving to the Lord when we give him our burdens?
Our concern for the situation
Our grief and hurt caused by the situation
Our responsibility toward the situation
What do we receive from the Lord when we give him our burdens?
The internal, spiritual resources we need to deal with the situation
The wisdom to identify our responsibilities within the situation
The ability to rest despite the situation
The peace of knowing that God is sovereign over the situation
