January 8, 2019 BE Encouraged my brothers and sisters!  

Many years ago, when I was a young man a friend, Ruthie, gave me a small plaque with the words of Psalm 55:22 written on it.  I still have this plaque and it hangs in my office as  a constant reminder to the truth in it!

To cast suggests that the care is too heavy for us!  I cannot bear it alone!  I am overwhelmed by its weight.  It is too large a problem for me to figure out and escape.

Therefore, I chose to throw it on the LORD.  This is a very wise choice.  Since He is All-knowing, All-powerful and All-loving!  He is the only one who can carry ALL cares!  He is able and willing to bear my burdens for me!  So I pitch it to HIM.  I do not cast it to a philosophy or a Bible text. I am consciously giving it all to my Savior! 

As a blessed result, He will sustain ME.  I am weak but He is strong!  I am perplexed but He knows it all perfectly,  This is a step of faith since I am trusting in an unseen God.  But He sees everything!  Not only is He willing to carry my care, He is willing to carry ME! 

I do not know what "care" you are carrying today.  But I urge on the basis of this verse and my own lifelong experiences - cast your cares on Him. 

We often say to others, "Take Care" but I had a dear friend in college who always signed his name to a letter with the conclusion - "Cast Cares!"  This is wise advice!

May you experience our Lord's sustaining strength today!
