Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7
It sounds like such a great thing to do, such an easy thing to do. To release all of our cares and troubles and give them over to God. To let go of our worries, doubts, and fears and live a free and easy life.
Since we have Someone Who is ready, willing, and eager to make our lives less burdensome, why do we continue to let problems keep us up at night? Why do we fret today over something that might happen tomorrow? Why do we stress over little things and grow anxious over big things?
It may be that we like to know what is going to happen next. We don’t like uncertainty. We love security. Letting go of life so that God can take control is a lot easier said than done. But when we realize how short life can be and understand that we don’t get to determine the length of our days, it becomes easier to turn our futures over to Him.
Before we have a question, God already has the answer. Before a problem arises, God already has the solution. When we were in the past, God already knew the present would be what it is. Now that we are in the present, God already knows all that the future will bring. Life instantly becomes more enjoyable and less stressful when we accept the fact that all our tomorrows are in the hands of God.
