Got Troubles?

“Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.” — 1 Peter 5:7
                                                         
Do you have troubles or pain in your life today? God tenderly cares for those of us who are His. In Isaiah 40:11 he tells us, “He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.”

Often the cares and anxiety that we experience in life are for our children or other loved ones who are going through pain. A child in the hospital with a critical medical condition, a terminally ill spouse, our own broken relationships — these situations, and outcomes, are all in God’s capable, Sovereign hands. He cares for you and me. Like a shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ leads us to the green pastures of His word where we as His sheep can feed. The ultimate act that the Shepherd of our souls does for us is that He lays down His Life for His sheep. Jesus did that for those that are His in a one-time act on the cross. We are protected from the enemy by His love and care.

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” — Philippians 4:6-7
