Podcast #81: “Cast My Cares” by Finding Favour

Exploring a letter from an apostle who had seen in all...1 Peter

With all of the distractions around us, it is important to get really clear on what God wants to be the center of our attention. Like a fancy camera lens, let’s focus clearly and allow the troubles of this world to blur in the background. “Cast My Cares” by Finding Favour leads us straight to 1 Peter and what God’s Word has to teach on how to accomplish this clarity.

This Week’s Challenge

Read all of 1 Peter. Try the tools I used this week. Listen to the audio version of 1 Peter, read it out loud, pray before reading and try reading in a new version…or better yet, read it several times in several versions. I just scratched the surface of this powerful letter of instruction from someone who had suffered, made some pretty embarrassing choices and had matured in the Lord.
