"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." (1 Peter 5:7 AMP)

Could you really believe this verse and continue to worry? Absolutely not! Worry is disobedience to God's Word, and disobedience is sin. In my travels, I can easily see that faith is at an all-time low in the Body of Christ, so I have been preaching hard and fast on faith.

Faith will always be paralyzed in the life of someone who is worrying. Many Christians fail to receive their healing because they keep their eyes focused upon the problem, thus holding the answer away from their reach.

When thoughts and fears bombard, how do you keep from taking them? You must say, "No Satan, that isn't my thought. I have no care, because I have cast it upon God." Many will have to break their "habit" of worrying. Some have taken it up not realizing how offensive and sinful it is to God; but the Word will help you walk free from it as you obey. (1 Peter 5:7)

If I were searching through my kitchen for something to cook for supper, but my husband called from the office and said, "Don't cook supper tonight. I'll pick up something for us to eat at the drive-through," I would be crazy if I continued to hunt through the kitchen, wringing my hands, worrying about what to make for supper. By acting that way, I would be saying that my husband is a liar and I couldn't believe him to do what he said he would do. I would be totally disregarding his word.

In the same respect, there are people who totally disregard what God has already said to them in the Bible. He tells us not to worry or take any care in life, because He is caring for us. Yet they wring their hands with worry and wonder what to do. How faithless that must appear in God's sight!

The Christian life is sweet and full of rewards, so make a decision to enjoy your life! Fill it with God and His Word, and watch how well God will take care of you when you free yourself from the cares and worries of life.

Commit your way to the Lord—roll and repose (each care of) your load on Him; trust (lean on, rely on and be confident) also in Him, and He will bring it to pass.  (Ps. 37:5 AMP)

Continue to leave the care with Him, for only then is He able to bring His promise to pass in your life.

From this time forward, let God and others find us in faith's position and living free from worry.
