cast your cares

“So here’s what I have learned through it all: leave your cares and anxieties at the feet of the lord” Psalm 55:22 Passion Translation

You can only understand what David is saying here from reading the whole psalm. It’s about David been betrayed not just by any person but a man called Ahithophel. In v13 David tells us it was his intimate friend, one like a brother to him. His close adviser the friend he walked with and worked with. Betrayal of a friend is one of the most painful and devastating things to go through. This psalm is raw, emotional a glimpse into the agony of David’s soul. This makes v22 more powerful. To come to this place is definitely not easy. It’s another level of what it means to die to self. To come to the place where you bring the deepest emotional pain you are experiencing and leave it at the feet of Jesus trusting in Him and him alone. This shows the depth of David’s heart for the Lord and why he was a man after Gods own heart. Not all pass this test.

In 1 peter 5:7 Peter the Apostle declares the same thing. “Casting the whole of your care all of your worries and concern’s upon the lord once and for all, for he cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” Amplified version. Maybe Peter is thinking of David here. If we walk around weighed down by cares, anxieties and worries it just reveals our lack of trust and faith in our heavenly Father. A challenge indeed.
