To all the carriers of cares, I have a word from the Lord for you. “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” (Psalm 55:2)
The enemy is subtle, slow maneuvering and cunning in the way he convinces us. People share their heart with us, God shares prophetic promises with us, others flat out attack us and still others silently accuse us. Family goes through challenges, prayers go unanswered, the narrative of the nation seeds us, and the inflation affects us. It is how the enemy uses the cares of the world to weigh us down. It is slow it is subtle, but it is heavy.
We wonder why do I feel so tired, why am I not responding in love, what is the attitude I am displaying or this silence I am speaking. You know you are not yourself, but you can’t put your finger on it. Promises spoken to you by God but not yet fulfilled. All the cares that we carry.
This morning in prayer the Lord invited me to cast all my cares upon Him. When I did, I was surprised by how much I was carrying, try it you will find the same is true for you. Once I cast them all onto Him, I felt lighter on the inside, it was a noticeable difference and the Lord began to speak to me, “You (all) are not to carry cares of others, the world, or even prophecy. You (all) are to listen, love, pray for, but not carry these things. And as it pertains to prophecy, it is not you (all’s) responposiblity to fulfill it. All I want you to do is speak it. I carry all these things says the Lord, I share things and people with you not to carry them, but walk with them. I never made you to carry any of this, so cast all your cares upon Me for I care for you.” It was so liberating to hear the Lord speak this today. I hope it blesses you and you cast all cares upon Him for He is strong enough to carry them because He cares for you!
