Casting
Pam and I are always on the lookout for places to kayak that have a launch and calm waters. Recently we took a drive very close to our house on someones recommendation. Just east and south of us is a couple of man assisted lakes that only allow non-powered vessels and is a favorite fishing spot for our recommender. Weve seen the first lake before because it is in eye shot of a trail we hike from time to time. On the edge of the number one lake is a power line that is draped in fishing line from obvious over-zealous anglers and novices. It makes me giggle. Not in that sinister sort of rejoicing over misfortune fostered by such TV programs as Americas Funniest Home Videos but that empathetic chortle of remembering wrestling with sorted objects when I took my boys fishing (plus there is a lot and I mean a lot of fishing line on the power lines). Yes, casting is a skill! Peter exhorts all of the weary life travelers that have been tangled up in this worlds power lines to cast their anxiety on God because he cares for them (1 Peter 5:7). Its a much easier cast and always hits its target because it depends on Him and not us! The difficulty comes with the only successful spiritual anglers are the ones who are humble God opposes the proud and self-absorbed! God exalts only those who wait on Him those who commit to His timing and not our own. But this is the guarantee Your cast will be perfect and He will lift you up in due time. Trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding are ancient words that will always bear true. Smart spiritual anglers will take aim at godly shores and trust in a God who is always true and faithful! Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you!
