Do you know what Aunt Dee just did? I was sitting at my messy desk, and I decided to clean it off! Wadding up some of the old papers, I THREW them into the trash. Ahh, now my desk looks much better! That reminds me of what God invites us to do with all our worries!
I Peter 5:7 says Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you. Casting means to throw. Our cares are those things that cause us to worry, to complain, or to be afraid. "Him" is speaking of the Lord Jesus Christ. "You" is all of those who have put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour from sin.
If you know that you have already believed on the Lord Jesus and asked Him to come into your life, you are His child! Even as God's child, however, there are things that cause you to worry, like family problems, or things that happen at school. And the world can be a very scary place. There is much danger, especially for children like you. But the Lord Jesus knows about every thing that comes into your life. Do you think He cares about those things that bother you? Of course He does! Do you think He is big enough to help you? The Bible tells us there is NOTHING too hard for Him! Of course He can help you!
Sometimes the Lord Jesus cares for you by removing the problem, or at other times, He may move YOU away from the problem. But there are those times when your wise, loving, Heavenly Father wants to teach you something important by taking you RIGHT THROUGH the problem. He is still with you however, and He is still taking care of you!
Will you do what Aunt Dee did with all her those messy papers on her desk? Will you take all those things that worry you and throw them on the Lord? You can do that by taking all those problems to Him in prayer.
