2013 April 4 - Morning Manna

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
(1 Peter 5:6-7).
Today's Morsel: Because people seem to be living longer, many are starting to wonder about what kinds of health care and other types of care should they have in place in the event that they should live longer. Some people are starting to put insurance plans in place so that their kids and family will not have to care for them. Shouldn't a family care for family. Yet what I find today is that many parents do not want to be a bother to their children, so they make other arrangements. And many people do not want to be bothered with their aging parents or family members. Since when was this the case? The golden rule seems to be slipping from the forefront of people lives. "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you." But what about the things that we are concerned and worry about. Do you worry and fret over your health? Do you worry and fret over unforeseen situations and circumstances? When we worry and fret, these things can become burdens to us. Peter said that the things we are concerned about, we should not allow them to become a burden to us, but that we should give them over to the Lord because He careth for us. If we would release our cares to God at the onset, they will be easier to deal with, because we will know that His perfect will will see us through. But the problem isn't that Jesus will not take care of our cares, the problem is we won't let them go. Someone said, "If Jesus says let go, then you turn loose the rope."
Sing: Give it all. Give it all. Give it all to Jesus, shattered dreams wounded hearts broken toys. Give it all. Give it all. Give it all to Jesus and He will turn your sorrow into joy.
