Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Wednesday 29 January 2014 at 06:00 am.

29 January

Cast all you worries on Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Don't worry about anything! But if something comes up that causes you to worry, as it must be the case that one does encounter and has to face many obstacles in this world, then position yourself like this: Don't let yourself be overcome with your worry, be what it may, but instead leave the worry behind and with prayer and pleas to God, turn to God and ask Him to bring to pass everything that you had wanted to accomplish with worries. And do this with thanksgiving that you have such a God Who cares for you, and to Whom you may boldly bring all your concerns and requests. But whoever does not position himself thus when something comes to him, but instead wants to first asses it with reason and reign over it with his own council and takes the worry upon himself, he toils himself into much grief, loses peace and joy with God and accomplishes nothing, but instead only grabs old of sand and sinks further into it and never comes out of it, as we do every day with our own and other experiences.

A tough one to translate.  I have before me #528 in T L (Paul Gerhardt's twelve verse hymn); here's v. 1:

If God be for me, I may a host defy; 

For when I pray, before me  My foes confounded fly. 

If Christ, my Head and Master,  Befriend me from above,  

What foe or what disaster  Can drive me from His love? 

In Christ,

Elmer H.
