Are Your Troubles Trivial?


Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7

I’ve always liked that verse; I find it comforting.

Sometimes, though, our troubles might seem somewhat trivial in the overall scheme of things. Maybe they’re too small to bring before the God of the universe?

R.A. Torrey, an American evangelist, pastor and writer had this to say on that subject:

We sometimes fear to bring our troubles to God, because they must seem small to Him who sitteth on the circle of the earth. But if they are large enough to vex and endanger our welfare, they are large enough to touch His heart of love. For love does not measure by a merchant’s scales, not with a surveyor’s chain. It hath a delicacy…unknown in any handling of material substance.

Bottom line: remember what 1 Peter 5:7 has to say!
