When is it we most want someone to just take care of us? However, think about this for a bit—when is it we most want to care for someone else? Isn’t it when we love them, when our hearts our filled with compassion?
When we have worries we can go to a friend or spouse, a counsellor or pastor, and tell them and often feel better about the situation. God takes this up a notch. Not only will He listen to us, He asks us to cast those anxieties on Him. He will take them from us.
Peter must have marveled at the power of the gospel. Even those who had never seen the Lord were still filled with belief and incredible joy. This must have been a constant comfort and encouragement to him as he brought the message of forgiveness and told about what Jesus had done.
