Cast or Carry: What Will You Choose?
1 Peter 5:7 Amplified Bible (AMP) 7 Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. It is no coincidence that the Lord inspired the author of this letter to use the word cast. As you apply this word to your life this week be sure to think like a fisherman. When a fisherman casts his rod or net, he does so with great expectation. He expects to reel in something good. When we cast our cares upon the Lord we too should do so with great expectation. We should cast our cares on the Lord and expect to reel in God’s peace. We can rest there believing that God’s got it all in control. Wondering about bait? Cast those cares and let your bait be a shout unto God with a voice of triumph, a hearty thanksgiving because you expect a victory. Do I need to say more?
