March 2017 Blessings

Make the Month of March a Time for Casting, Hurling & Flinging!

Are you feeling anxious about anything? No matter what you may be going through right now, you need to take a moment to assimilate the truth that God cares for you.

And because He cares, He says you should cast all your anxiety upon Him. To cast is to: throw something forcefully in a specified direction. Synonyms of the word “cast” include throw, fling, toss, hurl and shed.

The Amplified Bible puts it this way: “casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” (1 Peter 5:7, AMP).

The Amplified Bible puts it this way: “casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” (1 Peter 5:7, AMP).

 

Note that the Amplified Bible says, “once and for all on Him”. In other words, we are required to shed ALL our anxieties, ALL our worries and ALL our concerns and to toss, hurl, and fling them UPON the LORD ONCE and FOR ALL. The use of the phrase “once and for all” means we must LEAVE them with God without taking them back!!! It is human nature to give our cares to the Lord and then want to take them back because we like to have something to moan and groan about! That won’t work here. If you want the Lord to take care of your anxieties, you MUST leave them with Him, and not try to take them back!

In Psalm 55:22, the Bible says, “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall” (NIV). The Amplified Bible says “Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).” My pick of the day is The Message Translation which says, “Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders— He’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out. He’ll never let good people topple into ruin.”

Have you got any troubles? Are you going through any challenges? Have you got any worries? Are you anxious about anything? The good news is you can “Pile” them on God’s shoulders. If you do give them to Him, not only will He carry the load for you, He will also help you out; He will sustain you!

Make March the month for casting, flinging and hurling all your cares, worries and anxieties on the Lord!
