’’Casting all your care upon him; for He careth for you’’. (I Peter 5:7)

Do you know no man cares for you like Jesus? Christ is the compassionate Saviour who loves to bear every burden you may have. This is evident in His invitation to you as He says, ‘‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest’’(Matthew 11:28).

Restless youths will find rest for their souls when they come to Jesus. You will enjoy peace unspeakable no matter the turbulent storms, if you allow Jesus to navigate the ship of your life. With Jesus on board, you need not to worry yourself about the problems of yesterday, or allow fears because of the challenges of today or be anxious about the possibilities of tomorrow. Be a wise Christian youth; ’’Casting all your care upon him; for He careth for you’’.

Jesus Christ is our burden bearer. The scripture says, ‘‘Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted’’ (Isaiah 53:4). It is quite unnecessary for you to allow sorrow, griefs or any problem to weigh you down since Jesus has born them for you. Ponder on the words of this song:

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Challenge: Take all your burdens to Jesus and leave them for Him

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to bear my burdens as I trust my life into your care.
