We are told to in 1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
That means to release them to Him. When we wake each morning, eyes open and our minds go immediately to the thoughts that haunt us. Those that keep us awake at night, those that cause us to react to others instead of love and those that tie us down to sin. When we wake each morning, not releasing those thoughts to Him, we are not allowing the blood that flowed from Jesus to cover us.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Trusting in the Lord completely means releasing it ALL to Him. Holding nothing back, letting go of it, freeing ourselves from the weight. I have released, taken back, released again, found new ones and released them. No greater freedom than knowing that He is carrying it for you. That I can lean on him and he will guide me.
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
I am free indeed. Thank you Jesus! Amen!
