Sometimes it is the simple things that are the most profound. There is no other God besides Him, tell me what other god gives you His care for earthly cares? Come to the Great Shepherd, allow Jesus to tenderly care for you – trust, surrender, yield these cares to Him and “leave them there”, for He knows your frame and remembers you are but dust.
The Lord is calling you into a deeper realm of trust – it’s a place of abiding in Him, here there is no fear, no worry, no lack, no need, just His tenderness that fills our weaknesses with more of Himself. Go lower still and allow yourself to become more fully dependent upon Him, for this is the most beautiful and profound exchange – His care for our cares. If you are humble enough to trust Him and surrender these cares, and LEAVE THEM with Him, it means they are no longer with you. This is the place you were meant for, union with Him that allows you to ascend above the earthly weights and cares. Thank you Jesus.
“Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7 TPT
“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. [Ps. 55:22.]”
1 Peter 5:7 AMPC
“As a father loves and pities his children, so the Lord loves and pities those who fear Him [with reverence, worship, and awe]. For He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust.”
Psalm 103:13-14 AMPC
“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 AMPC
