I have not cried in almost twenty years, but my wife can tell you that I used to be a cry baby.  I was a world-class worrier.
Now some people would rather listen to the devil than to the Word of God, because they get a lot of sympathy that way.  They cry and whine and get their egos patted.  They say, “Poor old me, the devil has been whipping me.  Poor old me, ain’t it a shame?”  Sympathy becomes their reward instead of the benefits of the covenant.

I have not cried in almost twenty years, but my wife can tell you that I used to be a cry baby.  I was a world-class worrier.  I could whine in several octaves at the same time.  In fact, whenever I would see somebody, I would give them an organ recital.  Have you ever heard an organ recital?  “My ear hurts, my nose hurts, my eyes hurt, my lungs hurt, my chest hurts, my digestive organs hurt…,”  you know, an organ recital.

But I retired from all that.  I cast all my cares on Him.  The Lord will not touch them if we do not cast all of them on Him.

If you do not cast the cares on Him, you will have to carry the burden.  The burden is real, and it will weigh you down until you can hardly walk.  Pain is real.  Fear is real.  Poverty and lack are real.  As you carry all that mess on your back, you will be bent over, struggling down the road of life.  You might even be proud about what a hard time you are having.

But I am not like the six o’clock news on television.  I have good news for you.  You can be free in Jesus.  I do not have trials and tribulations.  I have opportunities for them, but I have cast all my cares on Him, because He cares for me.  If I have cast them on Him, then I do not have them, and I am free.  If I say I am not, I am a liar, and I am going to have the power of Satan working in my life, because I am going contrary to what the Word of God says.

For years now, I have not been down or discouraged.  No blue Mondays, red Tuesdays, orange Wednesdays, chartreuse Thursdays, black Fridays, green Saturdays or purple Sundays.  Every day is a good day.  I have had a thousand opportunities to be discouraged, but I have gone by all them, because I walk by faith and not by sight.
