"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
(1 Peter 5:6)
The appostle Peter says we are to cast all of "our cares" upon Jesus. The word "cares" is the Greek word "merimna", which means anxiety. However, in principle it described any affliction, difficulty, hardship, misfortune, trouble or complicated circumstance that arises as a result of problems that develop in our lives.
The word "careth" is taken from the Greek word "melei", which means to be concerned; to be thoughtful; to be interested; to be aware; to notice; or to give painful and meticulous attention. He is interested in every facet of our lives.
I'm a believer. I'm not a doubter. The Word works in me; and at this moment, I humble myself under the mighty hand of God. I cast all my care over on Him. From this moment forward, I refuse to worry. Instead, I will pray. I will use my faith and believe, and He'll exalt me over the problem and over the devil. For I belong to Jesus and He cares for me!
I confess that Jesus is standing right at my side, yearning to help me and inviting me to shift the weight from my shoulders to His shoulders so I can go free! By faith I have already cast my cares onto Jesus. As a result, I am liberated from stress, anxiety, worries, pressures, and all the other things that have been bothering me!
I make the decision to yield to You dear Heavenly Lord Jesus every one of these matters that are bothering me. Thank You for coming alongside me to take these weights from my shoulders. Because You are so loving and attentive to me, I can now go free!
I pray this in Your mighty name, Lord Jesus, Amen.
