Casting Your Cares on the Lord

Casting Your Cares on the Lord


Psalm 55:22 (NIV)

Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.

Life has a way of burdening us with cares and worries, doesn’t it? The weight of responsibilities, anxieties, and the pursuit of success can sometimes feel overwhelming. Yet, in the midst of these challenges, we find solace in the words of Psalm 55:22.

The Psalmist tells us to “cast your cares on the Lord.” This invitation is a comforting reminder that we don’t have to bear our burdens alone. When we bring our concerns to the Lord, we are met with a promise – that He will sustain us. He will provide the strength and support we need to navigate life’s challenges.

Furthermore, the verse assures us that He will never let the righteous be shaken. It speaks of a steadfast, unshakable foundation that the Lord offers to those who trust in Him. It’s a refuge of stability in the midst of life’s uncertainties.

I’ve personally experienced the truth of this scripture in my own life. When I’ve felt weighed down by the cares of the world, I’ve turned to the Lord in prayer, laying my burdens at His feet. And, true to His promise, He has sustained me. His peace has calmed my anxious heart, and His strength has carried me through difficult times.

Today, I encourage you to reflect on your own life. What cares and worries are you carrying? Are there burdens that you’ve yet to cast upon the Lord? Take a moment to bring your concerns to Him in prayer. Trust in His sustaining power and rest in the assurance that He will not let you be shaken.

Just as the Psalmist discovered, when you cast your cares on the Lord, you’ll find peace and stability, even in the midst of life’s challenges. Your refuge is in Him, and He will sustain you as you journey through this world’s cares and concerns.


Have you recently taken time to cast your cares upon the Lord, entrusting your worries and burdens to Him? If so, what was the result, and if not, what might be holding you back from doing so?

How does the promise of the Lord sustaining you and preventing the righteous from being shaken in Psalm 55:22 bring you comfort and assurance in your life? How can you lean on this promise more in your daily walk with faith?
