Psalm 55:22 Meaning of Cast Your Cares on Him for He Cares for You

Psalm 55:22
“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.”

Explanation and Commentary on Psalm 55:22

Jesus came in and told us to come to him with our burden.

Matthew 11:28
“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

The promise of Jesus is not one that will fail in any way. We have things bothering us, some things are giving us concern and making us worry – the Psalmist says, “Cast your cares upon the Lord.”

What does the first phase of the verse mean?
Our cares vary and are unlimited. We need to take these to God. It is already written that we shouldn’t worry too much. It is not ours to worry. We should just tell God everything and then let Him bear it.

Matthew 6:34
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

We can skip worrying about tomorrow when we cast our cares on the LORD.

“He will sustain you.”
God sustains us in different ways. God could sustain us spiritually or physically.

There are battles that we fight in this life, they are not physical. This is when we need God to sustain us spiritually. We need the power to face the dark forces that want to bring us down, that want us to fail in this Christian journey. Because our God has promised that He will sustain us we do not have to worry about overcoming these daily battles.

The second part is the physical sustaining. God is also there to sustain us and give us good health.

That is what the Psalmist was saying about God sustaining us.
