A Daily Devotion for Friday March 1

1Peter 5:7


Cast all of your anxieties on him because he cares for you.


This passage reminds me to have an attitude of peace because I have given over my anxieties to Jesus. We know God loves all of us, every last one of us. But if we do not turn to Him, and do not know him or seek to know him better, we will not fully experience that relationship. I believe that a right relationship with God can free us from a lot of anxiety. But I also believe that this takes mindful action on my part, which includes handing over my worry. This is not at all easy for me, and is something I still struggle with.


Holy Lord, today I am reminded you are always in control, and are always there for me, no matter what happens. I cherish my relationship with you yet know that it can be better. Help me to grow closer to you and to remember to hand over my worries and anxieties. Amen


Becky, transforming

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.


Some of the shortest scriptures make a powerful impact on my life. Especially this one. My attitude is very important in determining the way I face life’s numerous challenges. Jesus could attain the glory of being given the name that is above all others because of His attitude towards the suffering, shame and rejection. He suffered in the hands of the very people He came to save. My reaction to what life hands me whether it  is positive or negative, is under my control and only I can change it. But this kind of attitude shows that I have not trusted God…

1 Peter 5:7


I am told that I am a control person. I’d rather say I am self-sufficient. The problem with either of these is I have not turned to God to help me when self-sufficiency backfires and overwhelms me. However, I do know and understand that God cares about me. I wish the voice of the Holy Spirit would yell at me and remind me to ask for God’s help when I have thought I could do it alone and could not!


Prayer: Gracious God, please remind me to ask you, not myself, for your care in any situation. Amen

1Peter 5:7

I hope I’m not stepping on Roz’s post this morning, but this passage brings to mind a couple of old hymns: “God Will Take Care of You,” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” Both capture the essential point of this simple verse. I try to harness anxiety to improve or refine my actions; the idea being that if I approach a task with complacency or overconfidence, I am more likely to perform poorly or be mediocre at best. The anxiety I do feel, I try to give to God, in the form of prayer before a sermon, testimony in court, an airline flight or some other thing that can rankle my nerves. When I “bring it…
