”Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” [1 Peter 5:7]
“I have one favorite preacher, ‘said Martin Luther’, that I love better than any other; it is my little tame robin, who preaches to me daily. I put his crumbs upon my window sill, especially at night. He hops onto the sill when he wants his supply, and takes as much as he desires to satisfy his need. From thence he always hops to a little tree close by, and lifts up his voice to God, and sings his carol of praise and gratitude, tucks his little head under his wings, and goes fast to sleep, to leave tomorrow to look after itself.”
Doing beats stewing. When you are tempted to fret and worry, divert yourself. Don’t sit around with the curtains drawn, wringing your hands. Throw open the windows, find something that needs to be done, and get busy. During the height of World War II, someone asked Winston Churchill if he worried about his tremendous responsibilities. He said, “I’m too busy, I have no time for worry”.
Here is a commandment that creates a new perspective—cast all your anxiety on him!
