Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you
1 Peter 5:7
In his book, He Still Moves Stones, Max Lucado writes, "What matters to you, matters to God. You probably think that's true only when it comes to the big stuff, like death, disease, sin and disaster. But what about the smaller things? Flat tyres and last dogs? Broken dishes, late flights, toothaches or a crashed hard disk? Do these matter to God? I mean, He's got a Universe to run and presidents and kings to watch over. He's got wars to worry about and famines to fix. Who am I to tell Him about my ingrown toenail? I'm glad you asked! Let me tell you who you are - you are His child - as a result, if something is important to you, it's important to Him."
If you grew up hearing, "go away, don't bother me," you might just think your Heavenly Father feels the same way too; but you'd be wrong! Fixing big problems doesn't require any more effort on His part and handling little ones doesn't require any less. There are no degrees of difficulty to a God who is all powerful. Listen: "The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him" (Nahum 1:7).
