What a wonderful God!  He loves me!  For Him I want to give and do my best!  

Capable & Caring
SOAP:  Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer

Scripture:    1Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Observation:  There are many places in the world where I can take my anxieties.  Some of them are very capable of helping, but none as capable as the Lord.  However this scripture does not tell me to cast my anxieties on him because he is capable, but because He cares.    

Application:   He cares FOR ME!  Wow!   What I do for Him may be very beneficial to Him, but what He likes best about it is that it was from me.  What I give Him may be very useful, but what He likes best is that it comes from me!  He loves ME!  He cares for ME!   This makes me want to give Him my best and do my best for Him!      

Prayer:    Lord, thinking about this verse has caused my heart to overflow with love for you!  And yet I know that my love for you is far surpassed by your love for me!  May I please you with all I say and do.  And I cast my cares upon you!  Amen. 

July 26:  Isaiah 46-49; 1Peter 5
