Daily devotional: No need for anxiety

Scripture
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 NIV

Observation
God is awesome. We don't have to carry anxieties and worries with us. Instead, He speaks compassion to us. He is the God who created the heavens and the earth and all that is within it. We need not fear or be concerned about anything. Rather, we can take our cares and burdens to Him, and He will care for us. He will not forget us. He will sustain us. This is but a small thing for our God, who loves us and knows all our needs! God will accomplish all that He has ordained. No detail will be lost from His sight.

Application
Keep this truth close at hand. Rest in the peace that God gives me. Don't hold on to anxieties; rather, hand them over to God my Protector and Privider.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you so much for speaking Your compassion to us. Thank you for filling me with Your love, Your grace, and Your mercy. Thank you that I need not worry about anything, but rather by prayer and petition I can bring all my requests to You. Help me to humble myself and rest under the shadow of Your wing. Help me to cast any anxieties on You and just allow You to care for me. When I do not understand Your hand or Your plans, help me to petition You faithfully but then rest in Your sovereign will and trust You. Lord Jesus, I thank you so much for dying for my sins and raising me to new life with You. I love you and praise You!
