Summary: casting your cares upon the Lord
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH LIFE’S CARES?
1st Peter 5: 6-8
Our world today is so fast paced!
We see everything in high speed today
like when we travel, or when
we’re shopping, or working!!
Sometimes going down the interstate
I can be going 70 MPH and people
will pass me up like I’m sitting still.
The whole world is in a rush!!
And when you go to the Grocery
store or to Wal-Mart watch out!
People will run completely
over top of you!!!
I think they need red-lights at
the ends of the aisles.
People are just in to big of a hurry!
We almost run in the grocery store
We used to have an RPS route its
And its such a fast paced job.
All day long you stop sliding
and pull out spinning. and you’re
supposed to get a package
delivered in no longer than one
minute!!! For Real
I did that for a year and I couldn’t
stand it any longer.
The stress is just so un-real!
And it’s a proven fact that stress
is one of the nations #1 health
I just can’t stand to be rushed.
It makes me nervous and it makes
us make mistakes
and you can’t make a rational
decision, under stress!!
So don’t allow yourselves to be stressed!!
Now I know that’s easy to say but so
hard to do!!!
But we have to balance things out
we have to balance our diets and we have
to balance our time and we have to balance
And if you’re not careful you’ll find
yourselves bringing this rush
into God’s house and that’s where we
don’t need to rush anything!
God don’t get the time that He deserves now!
Apostle Peter said Humble yourselves under
the mighty hand of God
that He may exalt you in due time
casting all your care upon him
for he careth for you
This is no doubt the greatest advice
that we could ever possibly have been given!!
Cast our cares upon Him!
People that’s our worries
I think that worrying is a sin
and that’s why God wants us to cast
cares upon Him! AMEN
Just like that ole song
what a friend we have in Jesus!!
No matter what kind of a problem we have
Jesus can take care of it, He’s our high Priest!
there’s no problem to big or too small
to lay at the feet of Jesus!!!
Turn with me to Hebrews 4:14-16
Our God is able to solve the problems
that stress’s us out.
And they steal our peace and our Joy
Jesus said in
with Men this is impossible BUT
with God all things are possible!!
Luke said in 1:37
with God nothing shall be impossible
Its human nature to carry burdens
I do it too!!!
But we have to give it to Jesus Christ
and we don’t need to give up our peace.
But then everybody would say
How can I limit stress
Well that’s such a good question
Stress isn’t always bad
some stress’s are good for us
like going on vacation
that’s positive stress
and most of us have to come home
to rest up!!!
Getting promoted at work is a
Or Becoming a Dad or Mom was probably
one of our biggest positive stress’s!!
Limit your stress with God’s word
Matthew 6:25 says:
Take no thought for your life
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink
God wants us to give it to Him!!! AMEN
When we put God first, it limits our negative
God don’t want us to worry about food
or drink nor clothing
because He will meet all of our needs!! AMEN
And when we pay our tithes if
its our last dollar, we already know
that God will provide our needs!!!
Phillipians 4:19 says
But my God shall supply all your need
according to his riches
in glory by Christ Jesus!!
Today people we have to be ready and
willing to serve God and we have to serve
Him whole heartedly!!!!
We have to be prayed up and we have to be
victorious over the wiles of the devil
we have to fight the deceit of this world
and we have to be faithful to God right
to the end!
we need to target our young people in the
church we need to teach them to follow
And the young people have more faith
than we do!!!
And many times today we’ll fall into that
terrible trap called greed!!!
Some of the poorest people I know
are the ones who have a lot of money.
And usually if someone has money
We need to humble ourselves people,
we need to get back to the basics!!!
