{Devotional}::Cast All Your Cares

Anxieties, worry, dwelling on bad thoughts, and having unsubstantiated concerns can actually cause your body to accept illness. They war against your body and soul (your conscience). Jesus knew this so He instructed us to give all these burdens to Him and to take His yoke upon us. This means His yoke of love and forgiveness. He cares for you affectionately.

Phil4_8

All these anxieties and concerns should not be your prayers as He already knows what your concerns are. Those concerns weigh on your mind and become burdens you bear, so do not dwell on them. Instead, pray for other people and forgive others and yourself immediately so that Satan has no way to frustrate you.  Philippians 4:8 should be the way to rule your thoughts and speech. We are creators, in the image of God. When He spoke, it happened. When you speak, you receive what you say. Guard your heart. Think only good thoughts, and only good and unmerited (or unearned) favor will be yours through Jesus. Let love be your greatest aim during this temporary time on earth. You can make it!!

Jesus loves you. Praise and thank Him every day.
