What Can Help Worry, From The Bible. Psalm 55:22

God Loves You
This short post will give encouragement to those who struggle with worry


What can we do when our worries are so heavy upon us that we just don’t know where to turn?

“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.” Pslam 55:22, NIV.

It seems like our worries come with companions: it is not a care but cares, it is plural. We are invited to cast them all upon the Lord, not just a few- but all.  No matter how many we toss into his hand he is able and willing to take them all.

This verse starts out with the word, "Cast."  It speaks of throwing something high and far away.  It pictures a fisherman who is casting a hook far across the water with just a flick of the wrist.  It is easy to cast our cares upon the Lord, no matter how heavy they are.  A prayer of faith and the humble attitude of surrender to Him is all it takes.

Our problem with casting our cares upon the Lord is that we sometimes pray and give something to the Lord saying, "I will let God work it out and I won’t worry about it anymore," but only a little while later we pull it back pick it up and start to worry all over it again. We need to give our worries to the Lord over and over and over.

God doesn’t promise to take our problems away, He does promise to "sustain" us.  He will go through it with us as a friend; with God we can keep going.  He won’t leave us alone.  We may feel like God has left us but we know he is there.

He will "never let the righteous fall." We may think we fell and we may experience tragedy in our lives, but He is there holding us. We might not understand the losses we experience but He has a purpose in them.  We may experience personal disaster and the days may be gloomy but that is not the end.  We have a secure hope and future in the Lord.

Who can say they are "righteous?"  We can’t make ourselves "righteous;" it is the work of God.  He makes us righteous through what Jesus did on the cross.  Righteousness, salvation, and eternal life come only when we receive Jesus as our Savior.

If you have not cast your heartaches and worries on the Lord then pray and trust Him to sustain you. If you have not trusted Jesus as your Savior then confess to Him your sin and receive his offer of salvation then you may be assured of Heaven because,
