Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
There was a woman walking along a highway, with a huge bundle of grass on her head, suddenly one car came and stopped near her and the door flung open. The glass of the window was lowered and a lady looked out, she asked this woman to get into the car as they were going the same direction.
The joy on the face of this woman was astounding.., she immediately sat in the car and kept the bundle on her lap. The lady in the car was surprised seeing this and asked this poor woman to keep the bundle down as there was enough space to accommodate it. But the response was even more surprising, the poor woman, said, ‘no, thanks madam, you have shown a great favor on me by giving me lift. Now if I put my bundle also down it will be taking undue advantage. And moreover the car would have to carry too many burdens’. The lady in the car smiled, and kept quiet.
Yes, this story definitely brings a smile on the faces of the readers, but we also do the same, don’t you think so!!! The poor woman out of ignorance did that, but what about us? God has called us to give us a life of abundance, He asks us to put away every burden and trust in Him, as He loves us and cares for us. And we try and mend the things as we please, we think we are helping God as the woman had thought she was helping.
Let us learn to trust God in every situation and cast all our anxiety on Him, we should know and believe that He would surely lead us through.
Prayer: Dear Father, help me believe that You are there for me and care for me. You would never let me down, help me not to be anxious about anything but put my trust in You. Thank You Lord for taking away my burdens. In Jesus name. Amen.
