Read Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional for today June 21 2023: Care Casting.
SCRIPTURE: Casting all your care upon Him.-1 Peter 5:7.
A Gallup poll showed that U.S. adults are rating their own mental health the lowest in twenty years. Less than a third consider themselves in excellent mental health, and nearly a quarter are seeking treatment.1
If you’re struggling with mental health issues, reach out to your pastor, church, or doctor. There’s help! And don’t neglect the promises of God and the reassurances of Scripture, for God’s Word is the foundation for sound thinking and healthy attitudes.
Peter wrote, “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6-7). Why must we humble ourselves before God? We cannot “fix” ourselves; we need His help to navigate the distresses we face. We need to be willing to cast everything at His feet and place everything in His hands.
Life is filled with many worries and anxieties, but God is eager for us to pour out our worries to Him, which we can do through prayer. No matter what your concerns are today, bring them to your Heavenly Father, give them to Him, and ask Him to work where you cannot.
Cast your care on Him, He that calls the stars by their names and leads them out by numbers.
