---Peter wants you to cast all your cares upon God because He will take care of them. But also Peter is asking us to be humble and also to be soberminded.

---What does humble mean? Patient in the Lord. Not selfish. Not gain and opportunistic orientated. Not self-elevated. To respect the people put over us. The Hand of the Lord put them there. Faults or no faults, they are instruments for a period of time and you are not involved. Why? God knows. That is enough.

---Psalm 55:22 asks us to cast our burdens upon the Lord. One translation read troubles and another said “whatever He sends in your way”. Truth be told, He allows it to come but do not will it. Why? There is a roaring Lion on this earth Peter told us. That is why. There is a heaven watching, that is why. And there is you who are His treasure.

---When we cannot carry any longer we need to pray and give it to God. That is the main secret. It is easy the lesson tells us but also our experience.

---Once you experience it, you will do it all the time. Christ said that He will do whatever we ask in His name.

---There are too many people, God will miss me. What! He counted your hair. Not even a bird falls to the ground and He does not know it.

---So immediately tune in. Call on Him. Believe He will do it. Wait and see and sure enough, you will see.

---I will ask my pastor. No. You are the priest for yourself. I will ask my father. No the father cannot save the son or daughter and the son or daughter cannot save the father or mother. That is what Ezechiel said.

---I do not know how to pray. Just say it and add an Amen. One sentence of your need and help me please. Amen. What is difficult in that?

---But I have a bad past. Even if your sins were the blackest or darkest ever, it can become white as snow, Christ promised David in Psalm 51. And it did because he was called perfect in Chronicles. David perfect? What about Bathseba? Perfect, by God. That makes the difference. Not by humans. By God.

---Search the Lord with all your intentions and He will take care of you.
