How often have you traded what you have for something you want and thought you got a really good deal? How many times have you traded automobiles and thought you got the best of the trade? How often do you receive an offer that you can not lose in the trade? God is offering us the deal of a lifetime! God wants to make a trade with you if you will stop and listen to him today. (Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.) He wants you to give Him all your cares, problems and failures. In return, He’ll give you His peace and joy. God really does want to take care of us, but in order to let Him, we’ve got to stop trying to take care of ourselves and worrying about every little thing we can’t control. Many people would like for God to take care of them, but they insist on worrying or trying to figure out an answer on their own, instead of waiting for God’s direction. God will give us peace, but we must first give Him our worries. We give God our worry, He gives us His peace. We give Him all our cares and concerns, and He gives us His protection, stability and joy. That’s the amazing blessing and privilege of being cared for by Him. What a deal!
