Thought of the Day !!

Cast your cares on the LORD
   and he will sustain you;
   he will never let the righteous fall.
                         Psalm 55:22 (NIV)

Can you cast your cares (or your burdens) on the Lord?  There are some things that God doesn't necessarily take away.  Paul said that he had a "thorn in his flesh" that he prayed would go away three times.  But he understood that God had a purpose for whatever this "thorn" was.  

We may have thorns that God will use to strengthen us.  But we were never meant to carry around things like doubt and sin.  He wants us to cast these things upon Him so that He can dispose of them.  Doubt is something that I used to struggle with a lot.  How about you?  Do you doubt that God could love you?  Do you ever doubt that God would call you?  Do you doubt your capabilities or your strength or your witness?  Do you doubt your righteousness before God?

When we, as Christ followers, doubt these things, we doubt God who is behind them.  For He has faithfully made us and is behind us all the way.

Cast your doubts on the Lord and he will sustain you.  He has made us righteous by the blood of His Son.  And He, who has the power to raise Jesus from the dead, has the power to keep you and me up, not allowing us to completely succumb to doubt, fear or sin.  

In the love of Christ,
