1 Peter 5:7 – Casting all your care upon Him; for he careth for you. (KJV)

I recently received the following message in my e-mail inbox:

    E-MAIL FROM GOD

    Good morning: I am the Lord your God. Today I will be handling all of your problems. Please remember that I do not need your help. If the devil happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFJTD (something for Jesus to do) box. It will be addressed in my time, not yours. Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold on to it or attempt to remove it. Holding on or removing will delay the resolution of your problem. If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is the proper resolution. Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest, my child. If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.

    Love eternally,
    The Lord your God.

    P.S. Please pass this on to all my other kids.

While I know this is something that has been written here on earth, I also know that there is much truth in it. Do we step aside and let God do it, or are we prone to try to solve things ourselves? Can we be like David in Psalm 102 and take our worries to God as we remember that "He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer"? (Psalm 102:17 – KJV)

Prayer: Loving and bountiful Father, we thank you for the care and love that you send to us. Help us, your children, to turn our problems over to you and leave them there. Help us to trust you for help and guidance more and more each day. In Jesus' name. Amen.
