Cast All Cares Upon Him!

In this day and hour, it is important to cast ALL cares upon him. 1 Peter 5:7 says “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. (That means every single thing that’s bothering you or weighing you down). You must place all of your burdens and worries on him. It can be challenging when you’re not sure how God will handle it, but in due time he will! Don’t follow your flesh, it just will create more turmoil and chaos. The problem will escalate instead of it being resolved. Can you obey his voice and follow instructions when he tells you not to move or speak? Can you lean not to your own understanding when it looks like God’s way doesn’t make sense? Trust in him and in due season he will vindicate you. It can be extremely draining and exhausting to put your cares upon something or someone else. Cast even the smallest things upon him, for he knows your needs before you pray about them. Your smallest worries matters to God. Worrying does not add to anything, it only makes things worse. Remember there’s a word for every situation you go through. Cast all cares upon him and again he will give you rest.





The Small things do Matter



Never despise the day of humble beginnings. Everything is a preparation for where he wants to take you. Always remember that the small things are just as important as the big things. Everything starts with a seed. The slow process may feel or seem insignificant, but they are the steps that are necessary to get to the promise. They are important pieces that will work together for the good. Before Joseph became the king of Egypt, God put him in charge over Potiphar’s house and over the prison. God was trusting him with the small things before he could rule over a nation. Can God trust you over the small things? Before he can take you to the promise, you must pass the test when it looks like everything is not working out in your favor (As matter fact, its really when everything looks worse). Follow God’s voice of instruction and he will not lead you astray. It’s the little things that turns into big things.

Again, don’t be discouraged, for the time will come when you will see how it will come together. Sometimes it will look like God is taking you backwards. He will even almost take everything away, so he can see what you would be able do with nothing (Remember Job). This is the road that builds great leaders. Your struggles are a prerequisite in order to get to where you need to be. This will not be for everybody. You must understand that some people are comfortable with just enough. Not everyone is willing to go the extra mile of progression. It would mean getting out of their comfort zones, the possibility of failure, embarrassment and becoming talked about. 

The greatest leaders have to endure those factors and more. It was the small things that they had to handle before they were entrusted with any form of responsibility and authority. For example, before David was a King he was a Shepard over sheep. Before he defeated Goliath, he defeated a Lion. God will always send you a test to prepare you for where your going. Again, can he trust you with the small things?





What a wonderful thing it is to be misunderstood. Many people see the disadvantages of being misunderstood, however it can be quite a blessing. Being misunderstood can mean that you are marked as one of God’s own. Your just meant to be different which is a special sign from God. Everything that God favors is different and unique. Everyone is not meant to understand you. This an advantage so that you can know who you are in his likeness and greatness. If he has marked you as his, prepare to go through persecution. Marvel not if the world hates you. Although there are challenges of being misunderstood, it draws you closer to God. Being misunderstood can also mean that you are set a part and that you are in another league of your own. If you spend your time on this earth trying to be understood and accepted by everyone, then you will spend the rest of your life chasing their acceptance. You cannot please everybody. Every biblical character was misunderstood in some way as well as JESUS. He will provide you with his strength, wisdom, power, knowledge and understanding.

It is written in Exodus 31:3: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,



He Will Make A Way Out of No Way!


Just as he made a way for the children of Israel, so shall he make it for you. God never goes back on his word. His promises are true. His plans are mysterious and his strategies are beyond human comprehension. No one can truly figure out God. There is nothing predictable about him. He blesses us in different ways. You may be looking for him to do something he did before, when he is going to bless you in another way. He shall do a new thing in you. Everything that crashed and burned shall be restored. It may have been impossible with man, but with God all things shall be possible. Every fail attempt will become a story that is a part of your success. Remember that God is going to do everything he has said he’s going to do. You may not have receive what you wanted during the time you expected, but he will always come on time. No matter how impossible things may seem, feel or look, remember that he shall make a way out of no way. He shall multiply and expand what little offering that you have left.

It is written in 1 Kings 17:12-16 that:

And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.

 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.

 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.





Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”.

God can always still use you the way you are. Sometimes we feel that we have to have it all together in order to come to him. We are constantly internally reminded of our shortcomings and weaknesses. We are also reminded on the excuses reasons of why we cannot be used. The great thing about God is that his love is eternal. There are no conditions nor limitations that is placed on his love. He knew who you were before you formed in your mother’s womb. He already knew your weakness. But his power is made great in weakness. His love is greater than your weakness or any feeling of unworthiness. There is a reason why he chose you to get the tasks done. It’s more amazing when someone has forms of limitations, but still complete the tasks that are necessary. Don’t ignore his voice, hearken unto him. Allow him to work on you as the way you are. You are not alone or in it by yourself. Unworthiness can block you from so many blessings that God has in store. Despite what you may have done or what other have people done to you, does not negate the truth that God stills loves you and has plans for you. Don’t allow any wall of anger or guilt to separate or stand in the way of pursing a relationship with God. He’s bigger than all of your issues. Again, you are the perfect one for him to use. See yourself the way that he sees you.

It is written in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”.


More than Enough



You are more than enough. There is nothing that you need to change about who you are. Grow to love yourself the way that God does. If you have been beaten down from the words of other people all of your life, then it is easy to feel < instead of >. If people have under estimated you and counted you out, again you are tempted to feel less than. There are some people who did their best in everything they knew, but it still wasn’t enough. Rejection can also take a toll on how you see yourself. It’s important to know that you are more than enough :). No one can place a label on you but God. No one can know your full potential and all that you have to offer but God. Don’t give people no power to determine what or who you are. It’s easier spoken than said however, with God’s power you can do anything! Don’t count yourself out, because God hasn’t. He will prepare a table in front of your enemies. No need to explain or prove anything to anyone. You have a job to do here on this earth before you perish. The higher his expectations are, the higher the level of responsibility and discipline that is required.

It is written in Luke 12:48  For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required:

You are not a burden or any other name that anyone has spoken about you. You are a child of God, and you are more than enough! Be strong and courageous ♥.
