Peter was one of Jesus’s disciples and he was always up to something. Peter did not have a problem speaking up about anything. He was either defending Jesus Christ or denying Jesus Christ. As Peter was close to where Jesus was being tormented before His crucifixion, a damsel approached Peter and asked him “Are you one of His disciples?” Peter denied being a follower of Jesus Christ. To that end, I believe Peter was dealing with some humility issues.  Peter was one of Jesus’s disciples and he was always up to something. Peter did not have a problem speaking up about anything.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.  Was Peter not humble when dealing with insurmountable situations?

“Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos .Aenean non turpis vitae ligula tristique sagitt isras varius erat pulvinar eros pretium”

No! He wasn’t. He. Like many of us, we are too prideful to take our cares to Jesus. We would rather mull over them until they’re too big for us to handle. Then, we’ll take them to Jesus.  Have you ever had a friend that called you everyday talking and complaining about the same old thing? I think we’ve all been in dreadful situations that we don’t want to handle. wing everything to bother us or speaking out of turn when unnecessary.  If you are struggling night and day trying to find solutions to your problems. You’re Peter. You’re taking matters into your own hands as though God is not able to rescue you from the situation that’s troubling you. You have to stop telling yourself…”God is going to make a-way, while you’re pondering other ways to figure it out.

Have you ever had a friend that called you everyday talking and complaining about the same old things? I think we’ve all been in dreadful situations that we didn’t want to handle.  Truth be told. You have things to do. You can’t talk to them every day about the same old things. So, you ignore their phone calls. To my point, over time this is going to create anxiety for you because you dread telling your friend the truth about how you really feel about their situation. It seems logical to keep yourself in that state of anxiety. Therefore, the anxiety continues to build because you just can’t seem to bring yourself to a place of humility by letting them know you don’t have all the answers nor do you want to listen to the complaining every day.  Side note: Living your life for the benefit of others doesn’t make you happy. It makes you miserable.  The solution for anxiety, worry and fear are “Casting.” Every time I pick my grandson up from school, he rushes to the car, opens the back door, and he cast [throws] his backpack into the backseat. He’s excited to see me. But more importantly, he’s excited about throwing that heavy backpack into the backseat because he has carried that load all day. Remember, anxiety comes to divide our thoughts between multiple things, which creates uncertainty. People who have anxiety are full of jumbled emotions. The bible doesn’t tell us to deny the presence of anxiety or fear. God gives us a command to get rid of anxiety and fear.  Also, anxiety appears when we’re trying to carry a situation that only God can carry. Anxiety can no longer have power over our lives when we give God permission to do His perfect will in our lives. The solution for anxiety, worry and fear is “Casting.” Every time I pick my grandson up from school, he rushes to the car, opens the back door, and he cast [throws] his backpack into the backseat. He’s excited to see me. But more importantly, he’s excited about throwing that heavy backpack into the backseat because he has carried that load all day.  The key is being just as excited to cast our anxiety upon Jesus Christ because He cares for us. Every time we’re confronted with an issue that’s too great for us. We should walk in humility as little children. We should go to God as quickly as possible casting away those things that are tormenting us.
