Cast Your Cares and Trust God

Psalm 55:22 NIV, “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.”

I was recently having a conversation with someone, and she was sharing some of the issues that she was having with one of her adult children. She said it’s not easy seeing her child suffer, but that she was learning to just cast her cares upon the Lord. She said she knows in her heart that God has shown her that He will put everything into place for her child, so there is no need to worry. She said that she can see God working in many ways, but still has times when worry tries to creep in. However, when she focuses on what God has promised her regarding her child, she said she feels His peace.

I’m sure many of us can relate. We’ve had situations in life rather it’s our children, our jobs, our finances, our health etc., that have caused us to worry. However we already have assurance from God that things will work out well. It’s just a matter of casting our cares on Him and trusting Him to work out all the details, instead of allowing what we don’t understand to steal our peace.

As she spoke to me, I myself could sense God’s peace. Her words were a confirmation to me not to worry about details, but instead to cast all my cares on our God. We experience contentment when we relinquish control to Him, and believe in His ability to take care of us and supply our needs. As long as we place our faith in people, things, or even ourselves, we will not find lasting contentment.

Remember the assurance God has given you through His Word, or through the things His Holy Spirit have personally spoken to your heart. Learning not to worry may take some time, but as we learn, we will grow closer to the Lord, and be free to enjoy our lives as He brings His good plans to past. Don’t be afraid to cast your cares upon the Lord, because He has promised to sustain you. He will never let the righteous be shaken.

  1. I can truly relate to this post and I am sure other mothers can. It does not matter how old our children are we tend to still worry ove their well being.

    I am learning to cast all my cares at the feet of Jesus and then leave them there. Sometimes we cast down the troubles as we kneel before God, but then we promptly pick them up again as we get up. I am guilty of doing this so this post is a great encourager to me. Thank you, Dawn.

    1. You’re welcome! I’m thankful it was helpful. Once the children are grown we have to turn them over to the Lord. I definitely can relate too. God is in control! 🙏🏿

  2. A wonderful reminder Dawn. Whenever I feel fear and worry creeping in, I know I need to spend some extra time with God before I go about carrying that around allowing the enemy to wreak havoc with my trust in God.
    Blessing to you 😊💙

  3. It can be tough, but if we remain diligent to fight and keep the Word in our mouths we can learn to cast all our cares upon the Lord and trust Him We also have to take every thought captive when the enemy shoots fiery thoughts. There is nothing more powerful than God and His Word!

  4. Thank you for this post, Dawn. This world surely is full of personal worries as well as world concerns. The verse and thoughts you shared are just what we all need to hear and remember. An issue I have is sometimes after I cast my cares on God then I want to take them back. I’m thankful for God’s patience with me! Have a blessed day, Dawn!
