No Stressing! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 23rd

(Roll All Your Cares Over To Jesus)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Peter 5:7 TPT
“Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.”

Do you know you’ve got no business with stress, cares, and worries? That’s what the opening verse communicates. He’s telling you to roll your cares and concerns over to Jesus.

How encouraging that is. It’s a simple invitation to a life of unending peace and joy. Hallelujah!

The Amplified Classic version renders it this way: “Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” This means leave none out and stop stressing!

There’re people who care so much and are troubled about many things. It seems they must worry to be “happy”; what a terrible way to live.

Realise the truth that God loves you. He cares for you affectionately and protectively watches over you. This is what He says of Himself with respect to you. He doesn’t want you flustered or worried about anything. Worrying will steal your joy and reduce your effectiveness.

You might say, “The things I worry about are things of the Kingdom; I have a target to win many souls, so it gets me worried.” No. He told us to win souls, but He didn’t tell us to worry about winning them.

So, refuse to worry! Every so often, say, “I refuse to be anxious over anything; but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, I make my request known unto God.

Therefore, His peace that surpasses all understanding garrisons my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.”

The things He asked us to do are never burdensome. He said in Matthew 11:28-30 NASB, “Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is comfortable, and My burden is light.” That’s it! He’s taken the stress out of life. Yours is to act on His Word. Hallelujah!

I’m full of joy, revelling in the grace and glory of Christ and full of the blessings of the Gospel. I’m conscious of God’s love and care for me, as well as for every detail of my life; everything that pertains to me has been perfected! I live in peace and function from a place of rest, now and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
