Cast your Cares on the LORD

To always have a peace of mind wherever you are on your journey on this earth, it is important that you must spiritually place your interests, purposes, and hopes in the LORD’s hands. 1 Peter 5:6-7 says, “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hands of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.”

If you surrender yourself to the LORD for His guidance and direction every day, He will exalt you – He will help you attain your purposes and sustain you above all your disappointments. Cast all your cares upon the LORD our God for HE cares for you!
